By achieving Cyber Essentials you are able to prove that you guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate your commitment to cyber security.
Cyber Essentials is a basic, yet still effective, government-backed programme that will help you protect your company, no matter how big or small, against a wide variety of cyber threats.
Lindy Cameron the CEO of the NCSC recently described the important role cyber essentials has in helping the NCSC make the UK the safest place to live and work online.
Completed as a self-assessment standard, the certification ensures that you are protected from a wide range of the most serious cyber threats. This is critical because being vulnerable to basic threats will make you a target for attacks from cyber criminals.
Because the majority of cyberattacks are looking for targets that do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place, certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect you against the vast majority of common cyberattacks.
By achieving this standard you will be able to:
Reassure customers that you take cyber security seriously
Be listed on the Directory of organisations awarded Cyber Essentials
Attract new business with the assurance that you have cyber security measures in place
There are no prerequisites required from an organisations to start on a Cyber Essentials journey and our qualified and experienced Cyber Essentials assessor’s are ready to guide you through to certification.
