Cyber Essentials is a simple and effect government backed scheme that helps you protect your business from a whole range of common cyber attacks.
Cyber attacks can come in any shape or size, but they are commonly very basic and not always carried out by skilled individuals. Think of it as the digital equivalent of a thief stealing from your home through your unlocked front door.
Cyber Essentials is an annual certification that ensures peace of mind and best practice. Through regular assessment you can be sure you’re on top of regular digital changes and ever-changing cyber security issues. The certification is verified by a qualified assessor from the examining board.
Becoming Cyber Essentials certified offers the following benefits:
- Reassures your customers, clients and staff that you are working to secure your IT against cyber attacks
- An opportunity for a full audit of your cyber security level and ways in which security can be improved
- Generate new business opportunities as a result of your cyber security measures that are place
- Listed in the official Cyber Essentials directory
