Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a security accreditation scheme that’s been developed in conjunction with the Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (a part of GCHQ) 

It sets out the standard for cyber security and protects organisations from 80% of cyber attacks. It is designed as a security baseline for companies to demonstrate to their customers that they have taken reasonable actions to mitigate cyber attacks.

Certification is straightforward and affordable and awarded to organisations who can demonstrate, through the completion of a questionnaire, that they meet the necessary criteria.
