Cyber Essentials

Protect your business and reduce your risk by 80% with the only UK Government Cyber Security Standard

What is Cyber Essentials?

Backed by the UK Government, the National Cyber Security Centre designed the Cyber Essentials scheme to offer small-medium sized businesses a simple and affordable way to address their cyber risk. The controls that make up the Cyber Essentials standard allow businesses to protect themselves against the most common cyber-attacks that are seen every day.

What are the 5 key Cyber Essentials controls?

1

Access control

2

Firewalls

3

Malware protection

4

Secure configuration & network management

5

Updating software & patching

Why you need it?

Many smaller businesses are still under the impression that cyber-attacks only happen to big organisations and choose to ignore their cyber security. This only helps cybercriminals as it makes those vulnerable businesses easy targets and quick wins.

By implementing the 5 critical controls of the Cyber Essentials standard, you can reduce your risk by 80% and give your business a firm foundation of cyber protection. The cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving and businesses have to keep up, so taking these first steps in your cyber security journey is vital.

Cyber Essentials or Plus?

There are two levels of certification. The standard certification is carried out via an online self-assessment, which we can guide you through. The Plus certification takes things a bit further and involves a full technical audit of your systems by one of our qualified assessors to verify your alignment to the Cyber Essentials controls.
