Cyber Essentials is a government-led scheme, designed to help organisations address cyber security concerns and guide them on measures to reduce the risk of cyber attack.
We’re approved by QG Management Standards (one of only four organisations accredited by the UK Government to manage the Cyber Essentials process) to help organisations achieve certification.
Your Cyber Essentials accreditation process
We’ll review your current technical controls and policies to identify the gaps in your security.
We’ll assist you to implement all the necessary measures to meet the requirements of the scheme.
We’ll be on hand throughout to answer any questions you might have and to guide you along.
With our support and guidance, you’ll be able to progress smoothly through the process and achieve accreditation.
Cyber Essentials why it matters
Participating in this scheme will give you the appropriate guidance and support to help you protect your business against common cyber attack.
Once certified you would have an assurance mechanism to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that you are taking cyber security seriously and have taken necessary precautions.
Moreover, if you wish to bid for government contracts which involve the handling of sensitive and personal information and provision of specific technical products and services you will have to be compliant with the new Cyber Essentials controls.
Cyber Essentials Certification Two levels, you decide
Cyber Essentials Basic
Includes a self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) and an external vulnerability scan. This ensures that best practice is in place and that there are no known vulnerabilities present on the Internet-facing networks and applications.
Cyber Essentials PLUS
Includes all of the assessments for the Cyber Essentials certification, and also includes an additional internal scan and an on-site assessment of your infrastructure, specifically focusing on workstations and mobile devices.
Cyber Essentials Badge
Certificate holders are entitled to display the appropriate Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus badge.
