CESG is pleased to announce the launch of a certification scheme for Information Assurance professionals in both industry and Government. The first two certification bodies to be appointed by CESG are the APM Group Ltd and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. CESG also continues to work with the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) to appoint them as a certification body in due course.
Independent assessment by these certification bodies will help Government and Industry recruit people with the right skills at the right level to the right jobs. Information Assurance professionals themselves will benefit by having a clearly defined career development path and through re-assessment, as skills and experience grow, the opportunity to progress.
Chris Ensor, Head of Profession for IA at CESG said, "This is a major step forward in professionalizing key Information Assurance roles needed by the public sector. This is an important development along the path of securing the UK against cyber attack and protecting government and individuals data. CESG looks forward to continuing close co-operation with the APM Group and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, in delivering this IA Certification Service".
