Cyber Essentials: Cyber security certification for all businesses...

  • Government-backed accreditation scheme
  • Required as a quality standard in many industries
  • Full support from our cyber experts
  • Evidence your company’s commitment to working securely

Cyber-crime is only increasing and the consequences can be severe for businesses that fall victim to cyber-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 great way of protecting businesses operating in the UK. It can offer basic protection and, if your business needs it, further security measures can be taken to ensure you have a solid data protection plan in place. But first, becoming Cyber Essentials compliant is an excellent start.

Our Cyber Team can guide your business through the steps to cyber security accreditation with the minimum of fuss for you. We offer three simple options: 

  • Certification Readiness Package
  • Cyber Essentials certification
  • Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a framework that sets out how to address cyber security basics and prevent the most common attacks. The scheme is designed by the Government to make it easy for businesses to protect themselves.

Don't just take our word for it...

UK Government's explanation of Cyber Essentials accreditation:

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 a mandatory requirement 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.
