CESG-Communications Electronics Security Group

CESG is the UK government’s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance which advises organisations on how to protect their information and information systems against threats.

The UK IT Security Evaluation and Certification Scheme has been established to evaluate and certify the trustworthiness of security features in Information Technology (IT) products and systems using methodologies and procedures that facilitate international mutual recognition of certification results (certificates) between national schemes. The Scheme is operated by the CESG Certification Body (CB).

The CB also deals with other nations regarding the mutual recognition of such certificates; for the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA) see the Common Criteria Portal website.
