CESG (Communications-Electronics Security Group) Listed Advisor Scheme
The CLAS has now been phased out, and has been replaced by the Certified Cyber Security Consultancy CESG and CAS scheme, launched in June 2015.
What has changed?
The CLAS consultancy scheme, where individual information assurance (IA) consultants register with CESG, has been phased out. IA consultants and consultancy organisations will now be required to register under the new Certified Cyber Security Consultancy CESG and CAS scheme.
The new scheme is similar to CLAS, but once registered or approved under the new CESG scheme, consultants or consultancy organisations can also apply to be listed in the CCS (Crown Commercial Service) approved supplier list.
History of the CLAS
All CLAS consultants with a formal HMG security clearance (a minimum of SC) were authorised to provide information assurance advice on systems processing information up to and including UK SECRET.
The delivery of CLAS consultancy was specifically tailored to UK Government organisations, executive agencies and related contractors, as well as the wider public sector.
