Cyber Essentials


What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a Government backed scheme, designed to help organisations reduce the risk of cyber-attacks.

To achieve the accreditation, your company needs to implement a number of preventative measures across your infrastructure. These measures not only protect your own company information but also your customer data. As well as providing peace of mind for your customers, Cyber Essentials is often a minimum requirement if you wish to bid for public sector projects.

Cyber Essentials is designed for SMEs. The accreditation is done by self-assessment, answering a number of questions online around the set up of your IT systems and the controls you have in place. Those controls are broken down into five key areas

Self Certification

This is an independently verified self assessment. Organisations seeking certification are required to complete a set of on-line questions covering the scope, IT set up and controls in place. The responses are then reviewed by us and certification is granted based on the completeness and appropriateness of responses.


Assisted Self Certification

This process can seem daunting for many organisations, so we also offer a consultancy and advice service, designed to support you in achieving your accreditation.

We will identify the key areas for you to address, so you qualify for Cyber Essentials.

If you need help designing the processes and controls, we can deliver that for you and we will help you complete the self-assessment questionnaire to become certified.

An organisation must already have a Cyber Essentials Certification before they undergo the Cyber Essentials Plus assessment.

A qualified and independent assessor examines the same five controls, testing that they work in practice by simulating basic hacking and phishing attacks.
