Cyber Essentials is a foundation level certification designed to provide a statement of the basic controls your organisation has in place to mitigate the risk from common cyber threats. This is achieved through an assessment process carried out under the guidance of our cyber security experts.
Upon completion of the questionnaire you will receive the certification, allowing you to display the official Cyber Essentials badge on your documents and website. Once accredited you are required to resubmit your application on an annual basis with updated information about your security arrangements.LEARN MORE
Cyber Essentials Plus is a more rigorous test of your organisation’s cyber security systems. We carry out on-site vulnerability tests to ensure that your organisation is protected against cyber-attacks.
Cyber Essentials Plus assessment involves two key additional elements:
The on-site assessment is a mandatory requirement for all companies wishing to achieve Cyber Essentials Plus certification. Our team will visit your office(s) and thoroughly check whether the solutions you have in place comply with the control requirements.
A vulnerability scan is a requirement for all companies wishing to achieve Cyber Essentials Plus. It involves a scan of your internal networks within the scope of your application, with a focus on workstations and mobile devices. It aims to find out whether the Cyber Essentials controls have been properly implemented and to check that known vulnerabilities have been addressed.
All Cyber Essentials Plus applications must be validated and certified by a registered IT security body.LEARN MORE
