Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats.

The Government has teamed up with Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME)  to create Cyber Essentials. The end product is a set of basic technical controls to help businesses protect themselves against the ever increasing risk of cyber attacks. The certification refers heavily to the  government’s “10 Steps to Cyber Security” programme and administered by the NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre).

Why do I need Cyber Essentials?

  • The Government required any and all suppliers bidding for contracts involving the handling of certain sensitive and personal information to be certified against the Cyber Essentials scheme.
  • Cyber essentials will give your company a good level of protection and prove to your customers that you are taking cyber security seriously.
  • The cyber essentials scheme will mitigate against 80% of cyber attacks.

What is Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials Plus builds on the basic level of security that the standard cyber essentials provides. If you wish to get the cyber essentials plus accreditation your security controls will need to be evaluated by an external certification body.   

Cyber Essentials and Essentials Plus whats the difference?

Cyber Essentials you take an online questionnaire which is reviewed. Cyber Essentials Plus requires a certified auditor to come on site and assess your cyber security.

We can help with all the steps to achieve Cyber Essentials and Essentials plus and explain the process and what is required in simple terms you can understand.
