cyber assessment framework image 65e992a50fb51.svg


The NCSC Cyber Assessment Framework (CAF) was designed to offer a comprehensive and systematic approach for organisations to manage cyber security risk. It was developed by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) to support the implementation of the Network and Information Systems (NIS) Regulations 2018 (which are, themselves, based on the European Union (EU) Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS Directive) 2016).  

The purpose of the CAF was originally to help ensure the reliability and security of network and information systems for essential functions. For example, Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) like electricity, water, oil and gas. However, because it is designed to be flexible and adaptable, the CAF is also a very useful guide for other types of organisations that want to improve their cyber resilience. For example, NHS Digital recently assured all their services against the CAF framework, and GovAssure (the new cyber security assurance approach for government), uses the CAF to assess all systems deemed critical.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.


Covenzis delivered an excellent meeting like always - a hubbub of activity focused on future developments within NHS pathology laboratories

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
