    Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus?

    There are two levels to Cyber Essentials - Cyber Essentials which is the certification of a self-assessment questionnaire and Cyber Essentials Plus, which verifies the self-assessment questionnaire with some on-site checks and vulnerability assessments.

    We can offer several areas of support to ensure that implementing Cyber Essentials is a smooth and simple process. Please see our Cyber Essentials Questionnaire and Cyber Essentials Plus pages, to learn more about which certification is most suitable for you.

    Why Cyber Essentials Certification?

    “The Cyber Essentials scheme provides businesses small and large with clarity on good basic cyber security practice. By focussing on basic cyber hygiene, your company will be better protected from the most common cyber threats. The Cyber Essentials badge allows your company to advertise the fact that it adheres to a government endorsed standard.”
