IASME Named Sole Partner of NCSC Cyber Essentials Scheme

Since its launch in 2014 the Cyber Essentials Scheme has helped to protect over 34,000 UK businesses from the most common cyber-threats. The Cyber Essentials Scheme was developed to protect organisations against low-level “commodity threats” and, since 2014, has been delivered through multiple Accreditation Bodies and their respective Certification Bodies.

In order to simplify the customer experience and improve consistency, the NCSC have appointed a single Cyber Essentials partner to take over running the Scheme from 1st April 2020. This will make the Scheme easier to run on a day to day basis and streamline the development process to ensure Cyber Essentials remains relevant. From now until 1st April 2020 the Scheme will be very much business as usual with organisations able to gain accreditation from all five Accreditation Bodies.

The current Certification Bodies have been instrumental in the success of the Cyber Essentials Scheme. Existing Certification Bodies will be encouraged to apply to the new Cyber Essentials Partner to continue to provide Cyber Essentials as part of the revised scheme. The Scheme also welcomes new Certification Bodies or anyone from the cyber security industry interested in promoting the Scheme.

Over the coming months IASME will be providing more details on the transition in April. To ensure you receive the latest updates, please follow them on LinkedIn (The IASME Consortium) and Twitter (@IASME1).  Alternatively, you can sign up to receive the latest information via their newsletter.
