What is Cyber Essentials?

The Cyber Essentials Certification scheme was developed by the National Cyber Security Council to encourage UK registered businesses to implement and manage five technical controls designed to ensure maximum protection for your business against the most common internet-based-threats. The scheme adopts five technical controls which include: Firewalls, Secure Configuration, User Access Control, Malware Protection and Patch Management.

Cyber Essentials is available in two formats, Self-Assessment or Cyber Essentials Plus which is an independently verified assessment of your submission.

Achieving Cyber Essentials will:

  • Demonstrate your commitment to protecting IT infrastructure against cyber threats.
  • Enhance business prospects by evidencing robust cyber security practices.
  • Offer a transparent assessment of your cybersecurity posture.
  • Expand business opportunities, especially for contracts requiring Cyber Essentials Certification.
