In addition, the Cyber Scheme is essential for technical consultants wishing to gain the NCSC CHECK status, as it allows them to carry out penetration testing on public sector and critical national infrastructure networks.
As a member of the Cyber Scheme, Closed Door Security will be supporting red teaming projects, improving penetration testing standards, helping assess examinations, while also raising cybersecurity awareness and educating more organisations on threats.
Closed Door Security is one of the only Scottish companies to join the scheme, which already boasts some of the UK’s most established penetration testing organisations.
Speaking about joining the scheme, William Wright, CEO of Closed Door Security, expressed his joy that they have signed up and are helping fly the flag for Scotland, while explaining why he believes the scheme is so important.
“We are delighted to join the Cyber Scheme and be rubbing shoulders with some of the UK’s pen-testing giants,” Wright said. “We are now one of the most highly accredited cybersecurity companies in Scotland and joining the Cyber Scheme supports us on our journey to become NSCS CHECK certified.
“Cybersecurity continues to shatter organisations every day and we, as defenders, need to make it harder for criminals to exploit our Infrastructure.
“Penetration testing helps unearth weaknesses in systems that often go unnoticed, so with every weakness we find and every company we educate, we firmly close a door on attackers.”
