Code of Ethics
Training is an integral part of career development for technical cyber security practitioners and The Cyber Scheme (“TCS”) operates within the framework and guidelines of ISO 17024 and the NCSC CHECK examinations contract.
To ensure that we operate within these guidelines this code of conduct details the rules under which we will provide training.
1. Any training courses that we provide will cover a range of topics and subject matter expertise that encompass the role specifically as opposed to any specific exam. Therefore, the syllabus and learning outcomes for our training will be applicable across several examination formats.
2. Whilst TCS provides examinations for NCSC CHECK none of our training is specific to these examination formats / syllabuses, but rather as part of ongoing professional career development.
3. Any candidate attending our training it will be noted by TCS which trainer provided the candidate’s training, and that trainer will be precluded from undertaking any examination of the candidate at practitioner or advanced level for a minimum period of two years.
4. TCS will use its own internal employees to conduct training. This applies to both CTM and CTL.
Ongoing Professional Development
At the end of the course candidates will be provided with a list of topic areas which require further knowledge or improvement. These areas of improvement do not map directly into any examinations format but are provided as a guide across technical disciplines.
