At the heart of the Institute is the IISP Skills Framework©2012 which is widely accepted as the de facto standard for measuring competency of Information Security Professionals. CESG have taken this framework to underpin a range of certification schemes  including the Certified Professional Scheme (CCP), for which the IISP is the leading certifying body and to develop syllabuses for Masters Degrees. The skills framework is used extensively by our corporate members to benchmark and develop capability of their employees it has also been adopted by e-Skills UK to develop a National Occupational Standard for Information Security. The IISP also accredits  training courses offered by commercial training providers against the Institute’s Skills Framework.
