Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials Plus

In addition to being a qualified Certification body for Cyber Essentials, Xyone offer a Cyber Essentials Plus service for a more thorough, in-person analysis and certification process. This will involve a site visit to test your security, and, once passed, you will be awarded a Cyber Essentials Plus Badge.

The Cyber Essentials certification is awarded following the completion of the self-assessment questionnaire to demonstrate that your security procedures measure up to the Government’s guidance for basic cyber security.
