Trusted Partners Initiative

We have worked with Cyber Essentials Certifying Bodies based and operating in Scotland to support organisations, both small and large, to focus on cyber hygiene and achieve Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus, the Government backed baseline standard accreditation in cyber security.

This ‘Trusted Partners’ initiative, endorsed by our partners in Police Scotland, has developed into a network of independent companies focused on promoting continuous improvement in cyber resilience across all sectors in Scotland and supports the Scottish Government’s Strategic Framework for a Cyber Resilient Scotland.

Cyber and Fraud Centre Trusted Partner

Certifying Bodies are professional companies licensed to deliver Cyber Essentials assessments and offer consultancy services to help organisations achieve the certification. Certifying Bodies work in partnership with IASME to deliver the scheme.

Certifying Bodies based and operating in Scotland are listed below.

The first port of call is to select a Certifying Body that will perform the evaluation and award your Cyber Essentials Certificate.  We currently signpost this group to organisations in Scotland seeking to achieve Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus on the clear understanding that it does not endorse one supplier over another.  It is for organisations to identify the supplier they wish to work with.

In addition, there is a wide range of other Cyber Essentials Certifying Bodies located throughout the rest of the UK; details of these companies can be found on the NCSC website.
