GCT is part of the UK Government’s initiative to address the shortage of skilled cyber security professionals. GCHQ helps protect the Government’s communications and electronic data – it is one of the three UK Intelligence and Security Agencies alongside MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).
With so many cyber security training courses available, GCT certification enables organisations to distinguish between reputable courses and ones that have not been validated using a Government-endorsed assessment process.
The GCT scheme is underpinned by the industry-respected IISP framework assessing the quality of the course materials, and the trainer's delivery of the course against GCHQ’s exacting standards. Attendees can therefore be confident that they’re embarking on a training course that has been recognised for excellence by a UK Government-developed cyber security scheme.
