Preparing for your Cyber Essentials Certificate...

You have three options for your business to become Cyber Essentials Certified.

What is Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials; Self Assessment, Assisted Assessment and Cyber Essentials Plus – are UK Government sponsored
quality standards, approved and certified by GCHQ. We are authorised assessors for these standards.

Cyber Essentials concentrates on five key controls. These are:

1. Boundary firewalls and internet gateways – these are devices designed to prevent unauthorised access to or from private networks. The correct set up of these devices either in hardware or software form is important for them to be fully effective.
2. Secure configuration – ensuring that systems are configured in the most secure way for the needs of the organisation.
3. Access control – Ensuring only those who should have access to systems are permitted to have access and at the appropriate level.
4. Malware protection – ensuring that virus and malware protection is installed and it is up to date.
5. Patch management – ensuring the latest supported version of applications is used and all the necessary patches supplied by the vendor been applied.

Cyber Essentials Plus offers a higher level of assurance through the penetration testing by approved software engineers’ of the organisation’s cyber security. On successful completion a certificate will be awarded. Organisations who acheive certification will be able to display the appropriate Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus quality assurance badge.
