CESG today announced the launch of a scheme to certify the competence of Information Assurance and Cyber Security professionals in the UK:

Here at Ascentor we fully support this process.

Ascentor is working with the IISP

Ascentor has been working alongside the IISP, RHUL & CREST Certification Body to help refine the scheme and getting it up and running successfully. It is our view that these additional skill levels will enable businesses to identify the correct people for their security needs and help to formulate a career structure within the Cyber arena.

Ascentor personnel achieve the CESG Certified Professional Mark

Personnel from Ascentor took part in the initial pilot of the scheme and provided valuable feedback. As a result, Ascentor personnel were assessed and certified in the following roles:

  • Paddy Keating : Security & Information Risk Advisor – Lead Level
  • Paul Trethewey : Security & Information Risk Advisor – Practitioner Level

Since the Certification Body was awarded its licence to issue the CESG Certified Professional Mark, other Ascentor personnel have also been successful:

  • Martyn Boston: Security & Information Risk Advisor – Lead Level,Accreditor – Senior Level
  • Peter Curran: Security & Information Risk Advisor – Practitioner Level
  • Bert Curtin: Security & Information Risk Advisor – Practitioner Level

Ascentor continues to support the scheme and IISP

Ascentor will continue to support the scheme by providing Assessors and Interviewers all of which is done on a voluntary basis.The following applications are currently going through assessment and we hope to announce success in the near future:
