Cyber criminals want to scam money, data and intellectual property from you. The consequences can be severe for businesses that fall victim to attacks. If you haven’t taken steps to protect yourself, now is the time to act.
Cyber Essentials accreditation, a government backed scheme, is widely accepted as a good, basic protection to get in place for any business operating in the UK. Thereafter, if your business needs it, further security measures can be taken. But first, becoming Cyber Essentials compliant is an excellent start.
Our cyber team can guide your business through the steps to accreditation with the minimum of fuss for you.

Why Cyber Essentials?
Contrary to the common misconception, cyber attackers don’t just attack banks and large companies. They target any organisation which isn’t properly protected, in fact, businesses just like yours.
Cyber Essentials is a framework that sets out how to address the basics and prevent the most common attacks. The scheme is designed by the government to make it easy for businesses to protect themselves.
By deploying these controls, organisations can defend against the most common form of basic cyber-attacks originating from the internet.
Government explanation of Cyber Essentials
Cyber Essentials provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats, within the context of the Government’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security.
Secondly, through the Assurance Framework it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions.

Since October 2014, Cyber Essentials compliance has been mandatory for suppliers of government contracts which involve handling personal information and providing some IT products and services. Holding a Cyber Essentials badge enables businesses to bid for these contracts.
