NCC Group announced as an Assured Service Provider in latest NCSC Cyber Incident Response (CIR) scheme

Building on our status as an approved NCSC Cyber Incident Response Level 1 provider, NCC Group has been announced as one of the first six providers for NCSC's new Level 2 scheme which will give a wider range and larger number of victim organisations across the UK access to high-quality incident response.

The NCSC's Cyber Incident Response (CIR) scheme is designed to help cyber-attack victims find reliable providers of incident response services. Aimed initially at those organisations targeted by the most sophisticated threat actors, the scheme's level 2 expansion now includes organisations of all sizes.

Nick Benson, CEO of CREST, comments. "As the first NCSC CIR scheme delivery partner, CREST is delighted to congratulate NCC Group for becoming one of the first level 2 NCSC CIR Assured Service Providers. This, and NCC Group’s existing Level 1 status, reflects the company's ability to help private and public sector organisations (big or small) as well as charities recover from cyber-attack. And gives buyers the confidence that NCC Group has the necessary capabilities to help them.”

Darren James, Director of Cyber Incident Response said “As a long-standing partner to both NCSC and CREST, we’re delighted to have gained both CIRL1 and now CIRL2 approval, further enhancing our capability as an accredited and proven Incident Response partner who can support organisations in the aftermath of an attack, to a position of assurance and back to business, regardless of size or sector”.
