Opportunities for IT and Cyber Security Companies
QG Management Standards is one of five accreditation bodies that has been chosen by Government to set up and manage the certification process. We have introduced two levels of opportunities for businesses who wish to become involved in the delivery of the scheme, Accredited Cyber Essentials (ACE) Practitioners and Certification Bodies.
You can be a Certification Body and also an ACE Practitioner but we state that if you advise a company you cannot certify the same company, this is the first point that differentiates us from other Accreditation Bodies.
QG have now certified over 2000 companies to the Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials PLUS requirements and have over 130 ACE Practitioners in place. Adding to the Government procurement policy the Ministry of Defence have mandated that ALL their supply chain will require Cyber Essentials as part of their new Cyber Security Controls.
