MASS is ready for change

CESG has confirmed that changes to the CESG Listed Advisor Scheme (CLAS) have been approved –  Under the working title of 'Cyber Security Consultancy', the scheme is planned for launch on 1 June 2015.

The change will improve the quality of Information Assurance (IA) Consultancy by leveraging existing company processes in a company such as quality assurance and training & development policies; it will also support a multi discipline approach to IA consultancy service delivery.

There are a number of criteria that companies must meet in order to operate under the new scheme.  As an active member of the current scheme, MASS already meets the new requirements through its highly qualified and experienced IA team.  When the scheme goes live we aim to be one of the first to make the transition and ensure that there is no break in service to our existing customers.  Our services will be available to new customers under the new revised scheme.
