Pioneering Cyber Security Chartership in the UK: The Cyber Scheme and CIISec

The Cyber Scheme, alongside The Chartered Institute of Information Security (CIISec), proudly announces their groundbreaking status as the first ever Licensed Bodies for Cyber Security Chartership in the UK.

This significant development comes in the wake of the UK Cyber Security Council obtaining a Royal Charter in 2022, with the intention of professionalising the cybersecurity arena.

In this new capacity, The Cyber Scheme is authorized to appraise and propose individuals for Chartership in the Security Testing specialism and is concurrently developing the Incident Response specialism for Chartered and Principal levels.

On the other hand, CIISec is now positioned to assess and recommend individuals for Chartership across Chartered, Principal, and Associate levels within three specialisms: Secure System Architecture and Design, Cyber Security Governance and Risk Management, and Cyber Security Audit and Assurance.

These roles were formalized following successful pilot programmes, conducted in collaboration with The Council and industry partners, focusing on the evaluation and enhancement of various elements, processes, and procedures pertinent to the application and assessment of individuals at various Chartership levels.

The Cyber Scheme’s CEO Charles White states: “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, says: “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, comments: “’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”.

Applications for Chartership are now being accepted by The Cyber Scheme and CIISec. Application forms and detailed guidance for experienced cyber security professionals will soon be available. For further details, contact [email protected] or [email protected].
