Why is Cyber Essentials important?

Cyber Essentials is a UK government-backed program created to assist organisations in protecting themselves against various cyber threats. The scheme offers a set of criteria for pioneering organisations to follow to help protect themselves from cyber attacks. In order to be certified, businesses must complete a self-assessment questionnaire and undergo an external vulnerability scan. Cyber Essentials Plus is an advanced certification that requires a more rigorous assessment that involves external and internal vulnerability scans, a simulated phishing attack, and an on-site assessment of an organisation’s security controls.

What are the benefits for organisations?

The benefits of achieving Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus are numerous, including:

  • Improved cybersecurity posture
  • Protect against common cyber attacks
  • Meet regulatory requirements
  • Demonstrate to customers and stakeholders commitment to cybersecurity
  • For business, gain a competitive edge over non-certified competitors

The best part: We can help you achieve Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certification, which in turn can help improve your cybersecurity posture, reduce the risk of cyber threats, and demonstrate your commitment to protecting sensitive data.
