ESS Advisory is certified by CESG in the first tranche of its Certified Cyber Security Consultancy (CCSC) scheme, superseding the CESG Listed Adviser Scheme (CLAS) which was discontinued in 2015. ESS is one of the initial six suppliers to achieve a place on this national scheme to provide cyber services, as a certified cyber consultancy providing Risk Management services.

The CCSC scheme provides a pool of independently certified cyber consultancy services delivered by industry. With the CLAS scheme coming to a close, this helps meet the growing demand from Government, the wider public sector and Critical National Infrastructure for CESG-endorsed, cyber advice. ESS are delighted to be part of CCSC and very much welcome the service quality standards that underpin its operation.
