Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is an excellent way to protect your business.

Cyber Essentials is an excellent way to protect your business from common cyber threats and demonstrate to customers that you can be trusted to keep their data secure.

Cyber Essentials Certifications

This Government-backed certification scheme was launched in 2014 and is now a prerequisite in many tendering processes.

The Cyber Essentials standard covers five key technical controls to protect your organisation from the disruption, cost and reputational damage of cyber attacks:

  • Firewalls
  • Secure configuration
  • User access control
  • Malware protection
  • Patch management

There are two levels of certification and we can help you to achieve both of these:

This certification is based on a self-assessment questionnaire and can be achieved for £300 + VAT if your organisation already meets the required standards.

Where your systems do not currently meet the Cyber Essentials standards, we can advise on and help to implement the required improvements.

Cyber Essentials Plus

Building on the Cyber Essentials self-assessment, Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation is based on independent testing of your vulnerability to external cyber threats.

As a Cyber Essentials Plus certification body, we offer an on-site technical assessment, including a systems security audit and in-depth vulnerability scans, to identify any gaps in your defences.

Prices start at £1,500 + VAT for SMEs and £3,000 + VAT for larger organisations, which includes both the audit and assessment.

As a minimum, we recommend that all organisations should meet the Cyber Essentials standard to avoid leaving themselves vulnerable to the growing threat from cyber criminals.
