The UK Government has identified a significant shortage of skilled cyber security professionals and Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is working with other government departments to address this issue. GCHQ is one of the three UK Intelligence and Security Agencies, along with MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) and provides assistance on the security of Government communications and electronic data.
With the abundance of cyber security training courses on offer, it can be difficult for customers to identify highly competent trainers and good quality courses. GCT addresses this issue – providing customers with a choice of rigorously assessed training providers, thus they can feel confident they’ll receive training that is consistent with industry best practice.
GCHQ has appointed APMG as the independent Certification Body for GCHQ-approved cyber security training courses, due to APMG’s track record for accrediting quality training providers.
APMG certifies the trainers, the course material and administration processes surrounding the course – forming a truly comprehensive assessment process.
