From the Cyber Scheme team…

We are excited to announce that from May 2022 we will be offering four-day CSTM training courses at our new examination centre in Cheltenham. Please click here for more information and to book a place.


Plans are at an advanced stage to unify The Cyber Scheme with innovative not-for-profit partners, within the framework of a charitable trust status which will operate to support the industry into the future.

The Cyber Scheme will focus on training, examinations and ongoing assessments having been contracted to operate technical certification for the CHECK assured service scheme operated by The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

Our partners The Cyber Trust and The Cyber Security Challenge will engage with and discover potential cyber security talent through competitions, games and events through an improved and expanded online presence, as well as identifying and supporting individuals at risk of cyber crime in association with relevant organisations, providing training, raising awareness and undertaking vital research.

We are excited that this development will demonstrate a step change in the relationship between the cyber security industry and charity partners, aimed at supporting the wider online community as well as addressing a growing skills gap.

We will be making a short presentation on Friday February 18th to present developments and ask for feedback from the Cyber Security industry. Please email debi@thecyberscheme.org if you would like to be included in this presentation, or simply register using the button below.
