The Cyber Essentials Scheme is a program developed by the UK Government in order to accomplish two goals. The scheme provides clarity of the basic steps organisations should implement to mitigate the most common threats. Building on the 10 steps to cyber security, Cyber Essentials provides a framework that companies can work to and be assessed against.
Organisations tendering for government contracts and even commercial work are now being required to hold Cyber Essentials certification. Implementing these schemes will also help you prepare for ISO 27001, which shares many areas. We can help you implement the controls and complete your assessment process.
The baseline technical controls included within this scheme apply to organisations of all sizes and can help protect against the most common Internet-based attacks.
Cyber Essentials Plus
Building on the the baseline technical controls implemented to achive Cyber Essentials, the Plus certification involves independent verfication of your cyber security through testing of your internal and external networks.
