The National Information Security Compliance Framework (NISCF) offers an Advisory Service Accreditation for Service Providers providing information security consulting and implementation services within the State of Qatar.
While there is no requirement for Government Agencies or Critical Sector Organizations to work with accredited Service Providers for either consulting or implementation-based projects, accredited Advisory Service Providers provide great benefit and reassurance to customers.
To achieve Advisory Services accreditation, a Service Provider must meet the NISCF accreditation requirements for the Service Area and apply for accreditation by completing the Service Provider Self-Assessment.
The accreditation certificate awarded following successful application provides a point-in-time reference to an Organization's compliance with the NISCF accreditation requirements for Advisory Services.
Subject to the successful maintenance, the accreditation will remain valid for 3-years.
