What is Cyber Essentials Certification?

Cyber Essentials is an effective, Government backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks.

The government requires all suppliers bidding for contracts involving the handling of certain sensitive and personal information to hold an up-to-date Cyber Essentials certificate.

Cyber-attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked. Our advice is designed to prevent these attacks.

There are two levels of certification:
  • Cyber Essentials
  • Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials

The self-assessment option gives your business protection against a wide variety of the most common cyber-attacks. This is important because vulnerability to basic attacks can mark you out as target for more in-depth unwanted attention from cyber criminals and others.

Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

Cyber Essentials shows you how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks.

Cyber Essentials Plus

For Cyber Essentials Plus the protections you need to put in place are the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out.

Assessment and Planning

Our first step is to assess your organisation’s current security measures. We identify gaps and vulnerabilities that need to be addressed to meet the accreditation requirements. We then develop a comprehensive plan tailored to your business.

Policy and Procedure Development

Policies and procedures are the backbone of effective cyber security. Our experts will work closely with your team to create robust policies that align with industry best practices and regulatory standards.

Employee Training and Awareness

Your employees play a crucial role in maintaining a secure environment. We provide engaging training programs that empower your staff to recognise and respond to security threats effectively.

Security Monitoring and Incident Response

Our 24/7 security monitoring services ensure that any potential threats are identified and addressed promptly. In the event of a security breach, our rapid incident response minimises damage and ensures a swift recovery.
