Why do you need Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a scheme which has the backing of the UK government, aiming to help small to medium enterprises protect themselves against the most common threats against them from adversaries. There are two parts to the scheme, part one is Cyber Essentials and part two is Cyber Essentials Plus.

Cyber Essentials outlines five main controls to help an enterprise protect themselves against the most common threats:

  • Securing the internet connections.

  • Securing all devices and software.

  • Controlling access to the services and data.

  • Protect against malware.

  • Patch management and update control.

Having the Cyber Essentials certificate means that you are able to:

  • Reassure all your client base that you are actively securing your IT systems against attacks.

  • Assure potential clients that you have the correct measures for Cyber Security in place.

  • Demonstrate that you have a high-level picture of your Cyber Security landscape and system architecture.

  • Continue to work with the government as most government contracts will require you to have the Cyber Essentials certificate.

What do we offer?

As part of the Cyber Essentials certification process, you will need to submit a self-assessment to a certification body. This ensures that the good practice guidelines set out by the certification bodies, (CREST, QG, etc) are adhered to, and that all of the five security controls have been achieved. As part of our consulting services, we offer three consultation options for helping you achieve the Cyber Essentials certification:

Self-Assessment

  • This option is for those who have prior knowledge of the basic security controls in the certification.

  • This option will not include any consulting from our group of experts.

  • With this option you submit the self-assessment questionnaire to the relevant body once you are confident the preparation has been completed.

  • A director of your company signs the self-assessment questionnaire.

  • An assessor from the relevant body then reviews and certifies the questionnaire.

Online Consultation

  • This option is for those who have the skills to prepare for the certification, but need some help understanding the security controls.

  • This option will include a 2 hour consulting session to assist with the controls in the questionnaire.

  • With this option you submit the self-assessment questionnaire to the relevant body after the consultantation has finished.

  • A director of your company signs the self-assessment questionnaire.

  • An assessor from the relevant body then reviews and certifies the questionnaire.

On-site Consultation

  • This option is for those who have little knowledge of cyber security, or are unfamiliar with the Cyber Essentials certification security controls.

  • This option will include an 8 hour on-site consulting session, to assist with the controls in the questionnaire, understanding your infrastructure and the submission of the questionnaire to a certification body.

  • With this option you submit the self-assessment questionnaire with the consultant, after the consultant has spent time assisting with the preparation.

  • A director of your company signs the self-assessment questionnaire.

  • An assessor from the relevant body then reviews and certifies the questionnaire.
