What is Cyber Essentials?
Launched by the UK Government, the Cyber Essentials Scheme is a simple means of protecting your business against a range of common cyber attacks. Having a Cyber Essentials certification is also a badge of honour for businesses of any size. It demonstrates that you have taken some necessary steps to protect not only your cybersecurity but any data or sensitive and personal information you may handle.
The certification process comes in two forms, the basic of which is a self-assessment which is submitted to a certification body for marking. The second form is Cyber Essentials Plus, which must be obtained after the self-assessment and involves an onsite audit to check that all of the elements from the self-assessment have been put into practice.
