The Cyber Scheme team attended CRESTCon earlier in the month. Our CEO Charles White and Operations Director Sean McCormack attended the leadership dinner on the 17th. Whilst our Communications Director Debi McCormack and our Marketing Executive Emily Kinsella attended CRESTCon on the 18th of May.
It was a great opportunity to further work towards The Cyber Scheme’s and CREST’s collaboration and catch up with members of the industry.
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has announced the full launch of its Cyber Advisors scheme to help smaller organisations achieve key cybersecurity controls and standards.
The Cyber Scheme are currently the only Accredited Assessment Provider for the scheme, developed and delivered in partnership with IASME.
Our CEO Charles White has been interviewed by Rela8 Group Ltd as part of their Technology Leaders Club – the theme was ‘Why Cyber Security isn’t just an IT problem’
Our Marketing Executive Emily has successfully completed a course in website accessibility
The Cyber Scheme believe everyone should have access to a career in security testing. We are able to make allowances (where possible) for any candidate who requires special support during training and examinations. Access to all of our facilities is suitable for people with mobility concerns. We provide extra information such as location images and maps when needed at point of booking, reducing anxiety for any candidate who needs additional support. And our new website has been designed with increased functionality thanks to the learnings Em Kinsella took from her recent completion of the Introduction to Web Accessibility course at edX.
Small, ongoing steps towards supporting anyone with neurodiversity who wishes to learn with us. Important ones nonetheless.
