Many of our customers ask us what Cyber Security certification is best for their business. The only answer is Cyber Essentials, a UK government information assurance scheme operated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) which includes an assurance framework and set of security controls to protect your information from external attacks.
Launched in 2014 by the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills there are two levels that businesses can apply for.
- The Cyber Essentials certification process includes a self-assessment questionnaire and an external vulnerability scan that independently verifies your security status.
- The Cyber Essentials Plus certification process includes an internal vulnerability scan of your network, PCs and mobile devices.
Starting at only £300, the UK government’s Cyber Essentials scheme is a useful and cost-effective first step in improving cybersecurity. Our IT experts work with you through Cyber Essentials’ 5 key controls that can help protect your organisation from approximately 80% of cyber attacks.
