Certified Cyber Professional (CCP)

About the Scheme

As part of the Government's investment in cyber security, the CIISec consortium has been appointed by NCSC, a part of GCHQ, to provide certification for UK Government Information Assurance (IA) professionals. The consortium has been awarded a licence to issue the Certified Professional (CCP) based on the CIISec Skills Framework, as part of a certification scheme driven by NCSC.

The certification process is designed to increase levels of professionalism in Information Assurance and uses the established CIISec Skills Framework to define the competencies, knowledge and skills required for specialist IA roles. Developed through public and private sector collaboration by world-renowned academics and security experts, the Framework has been adopted by GCHQ as the basis for its Certified Professional specification.

This builds on the CIISec’s existing competency-based membership programmes, so not only will an individual be certified, but their areas of specialism will be recognised, offering the individual and their customers greater confidence that an individual has the right skills and experience for a role.


Our consortium 

The consortium comprises the Chartered Institute of Information Security (CIISec), the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST), and Royal Holloway's Information Security Group (RHUL), with CIISec certifying competency, CREST providing examination for the more technical roles and RHUL supporting with their experience in setting rigorous and consistent assessment processes.
