Cyber Security Assessment pilot tool

Why try out this Cyber Security Assessment tool?

This tool has been created and developed by experienced security experts from the National Cyber Security Centre and is hosted by Charity Digital.


Module reporting

The assessment is comprised of seven different modules that ask specific questions on the following important and crucial areas. Each section will take a few minutes to complete:


  • Data Protection
  • Security management
  • Mobile device security
  • Infrastructure, application and operational security
  • Security policies


You’ll have the opportunity to see how you score in a quick and simple way by viewing graphs and can review your answers for each module.

You’ll also be given cyber security and data guidance and recommendations according to your answers and scoring for each one.

Module reporting

All data that you enter in the assessment will be treated as strictly confidential, with only summary results being shared with the NCSC to enable evaluation of the success of the pilot. All data will be deleted 90 days after the end of the pilot which is currently scheduled to finish the end of December though you can choose to delete your data at any time.

It was easy to set up an assessment, navigate through and follow the questions. The coloured graphs were very helpful for a quick glance at the results and I also used information from one of the guidance to support a volunteer in our organisation”." target="_blank" rel="noopener">Assessment graphics
