CREST and IASME to support NCSC's cyber scheme

CREST and IASME have agreed to partner with the National Cyber Security Centre to support the delivery of its new Cyber Incident Exercising scheme.

Organisations wishing to join the CIE scheme will be assessed against the NCSC CIE Standard. CREST and IASME will both manage the assessment, onboarding, monitoring and offboarding of providers assured under the Cyber Incident Exercising scheme on behalf of the NCSC.

Dr Emma Philpott MBE, CEO of IASME commented: “We are really looking forward to working with companies of all sizes and in all areas of the UK to deliver this important scheme. We feel strongly about ensuring that the scheme is accessible for smaller cyber security companies to become assured providers and we encourage you to contact us to discuss becoming a provider if this is something that interests you.”

Rowland Johnson, president of CREST added: “We are delighted to be helping deliver this important new scheme for the NCSC by assessing and onboarding Assured Service Providers. With rising cyber attacks on enterprises of all types, effective cyber incident response is one of the most important parts of building cyber resilience. This will give all organisations who want to test their incident response, access to Assured Service Providers who can support them.”

The new CIE scheme will launch officially later this year when exercising providers have been assured and onboarded.
