About Fourtify Cyber Security

Fourtify Cyber Security was created to demystify and simplify Cyber Security for small-to-medium sized businesses. Based in Hampshire, Fourtify support organisations both nationally and internationally in achieving Cyber Essentials Certification and IASME Cyber Assurance Level 1 & Level 2.

We are a Certification Body for IASME which allows us to advise, implement and certify the internationally recognised accreditation to organisations that meet the technical controls.

We are here to Fourtify your business.

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.





What is IASME Cyber Assurance?

IASME Cyber Assurance is a comprehensive, affordable, and flexible Cyber Security standard providing assurance that the organisation who achieves it has implemented a range of critical Cyber Security, Privacy and Data Protections measures within their business.

IASME Cyber Assurance is available in two levels – 1. A verified assessment and 2. An audited assessment.

For Level 1 – A verified assessment, organisations access a secure portal to answer around 160 questions about their security. The assessment is marked by Fourtify OR another Certification Body and a pass or fail is returned to the organisation.

For Level 2 – An audited assessment, an assessor from Fourtify conducts an on-site audit of the controls, processes and procedures covered in the IASME Cyber Assurance standard. The audited version gives a higher level of assurance and is pass or fail. (There are no longer bronze, silver, and gold classifications to achieve).
