The Cyber Scheme and CIISec: UK’s Foremost Licensed Bodies for Cyber Security Chartership

The Cyber Scheme and The Chartered Institute of Information Security (CIISec) are honoured to be the first ever Licensed Bodies for Cyber Security Chartership in the UK.

This advancement is a direct result of the UK Cyber Security Council’s Royal Charter, obtained in 2022, aimed at professionalising the cybersecurity sector.

The Cyber Scheme is now responsible for assessing and recommending individuals for Chartership in the Security Testing field, and is in the midst of developing the Incident Response specialism for both Chartered and Principal levels.

CIISec, meanwhile, is tasked with assessing and recommending individuals for Chartership at Chartered, Principal, and Associate levels across three specialisms: Secure System Architecture and Design, Cyber Security Governance and Risk Management, and Cyber Security Audit and Assurance.

These designations were secured after comprehensive pilot programmes, undertaken in close coordination with The Council and industry representatives. These programmes tested and refined various aspects, from application processes to assessments of individuals at different Chartership levels.

The Cyber Scheme’s CEO Charles White remarks: “We’re pleased to announce that we have become a Licenced Body for the UK Cyber Security Council. The professionalisation of the industry is well overdue, especially as we look to counter the growing threat of cybercrime. A chartered organisation which reflects an individual’s experience, skills, and knowledge is critical for UK Plc growth and crucial for those employing such skills.”

“I’m also delighted to be able to announce our appointment alongside CIISec who have also become a Licenced Body, a close working partner of The Cyber Scheme and a voice for the industry as a whole.”

Amanda Finch, CEO of CIISec, comments: “The Chartered Institute of Information Security (CIISec) is so pleased to be one of the first Licensed Bodies for the UK Cyber Security Council alongside The Cyber Scheme. We have already welcomed through many newly-chartered individuals to the industry, and look forward to chartering many more to come.”

Annmarie Dann, Director of Professional Standards for the UK Cyber Security Council, states: “’We are delighted to be working in partnership with CIISec and The Cyber Scheme as we officially open for applications. This comes after our much-anticipated awards ceremony to celebrate the first 100 individuals who have obtained a Professional Registration Title through the Council. We are excited to see many more practitioners complete the process and flourish within the sector. By working closely with the Council and our Licensed Bodies you can be a part of cyber security’s future”.

The Cyber Scheme and CIISec are currently accepting Chartership applications, and will soon provide application forms and comprehensive candidate guidance. To learn more, reach out to [email protected] or [email protected].
