Cyber Essentials Basic
The government backed certification that helps you demonstrate your commitment to cyber security and protecting your users data.
What is Cyber Essentials?
The 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 Cyber Essentials has been designed to be easy and low cost as well as proividing a minimum standard in Cyber Security. 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.
