Cyber Essentials is the UK Government’s answer to a safer internet space for organisations of all sizes, across all sectors, and provides a clear statement of the basic security controls all organisations should have in place.
Developed and operated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), Cyber Essentials is considered the best first step to a more secure network. Gaining Cyber Essentials certification enables organisations to showcase their credentials and reassure customers that they are serious about cybersecurity.
How does it work?
There are two levels of certification: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.
The Cyber Essentials certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets that do not have the basic technical controls in place. Cyber Essentials shows you how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks.
Cyber Essentials Plus
Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protection you need to put in place is the same. This enhanced certification, however, adopts a more hands-on and technical approach.
