What is Cyber Essentials?

The Cyber Essentials Scheme provides businesses small and large with clarity on good basic cyber security practice. By focusing on and working towards basic cyber security, your company will be better protected from the most common cyber threats and become accredited under the Scheme – which means peace of mind for you, your customers, partners, investors, insurers; in fact for anyone you deal with.
Cyber Essentials is for all organisations, of all sizes, and in all sectors – we encourage all to adopt the requirements as appropriate to their business. This is not limited to companies in the private sector, but is also applicable to universities, charities, and public sector organisations.

STEP 1

REGISTER WITH US

Getting started on the Cyber Essentials programme is easy – simply complete the contact form on this website and register with us.
One of our team will then contact you to complete the registration process and arrange a site meeting.
Our method of delivery is on-site and face-to-face, unlike other providers who deliver the accreditation through an online platform. As technology and data security professionals with a long track record in supporting organisations we believe this method adds most value to the process and ensures organisations gain the most knowledge from the process.

STEP 2

PREPARE YOUR BUSINESS

One of our dedicated Cyber Essentials Practitioners will come out and visit your organisation to help guide you in preparing for certification.
A detailed security audit will be carried out together with the completion of the Cyber Essentials Questionnaire. These will assess your organisation in terms of data security, information management and your overall risk profile, in relation to the threat of cyber-attack.

STEP 3

TAKE ACTION

The findings of the audit and questionnaire will be analysed by our Cyber Essentials team, who will provide a Data Security Gap Analysis, and, where applicable, a set of recommended remedial corrective actions.
In order to achieve Cyber Essentials certification an organisation must rectify any issues as highlighted in the audit.
As well as providing guidance and advice, our practitioners can assist in the corrective actions process.

STEP 4

GET CERTIFIED FOR SUCCESS

Having completed the corrective actions, the organisation is then in a position to move to the final stage in the process – submitting for accreditation.
Your dedicated Cyber Essentials practitioner can assist you in this simple process. Once submitted a third party verification body will review and appraise the submission for accuracy and if satisfied will pass your organisation as compliant – SUCCESS!
Your Cyber Essentials Certificate will then be despatched to you.
