Cyber Essentials Basic
The Cyber Essentials scheme was created by both the UK Government and the industry to help design a basic set of requirements that all businesses could apply with limited experience of cyber security. Businesses which work to apply those requirements can then publicly demonstrate their commitment to cyber security via the certification.
The process of achieving this certification has been designed to be as easy as possible to achieve, while ensuring that best practices are in place as well as aforable. It has been proven to show that companies which have the certification can mitigate upto 80% of known cyber threats.
How does it work?
The scheme is based upon a set of five security controls which, when correctly deployed, will provide you with a level of protection from the most common cyber security threats. These controls apply to a defined scope, which could be part or all of your company, depending upon your needs.
