OVERVIEW

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a UK government-supported scheme that aids businesses in protecting themselves against a wide range of cyber-attacks. By gaining this certification, your business will have a better understanding of its cyber strengths and weaknesses and where there are gaps for further security.

When applied correctly, the security regulations defined can prevent 80% of cyber-attacks.

BENEFITS

Why do you need cyber essentials?

Cyber crime prevention

This certification claims to protect your organisation from up to 80% of IT security breaches, which can give you the peace of mind that your business will not face the financial burdens that come with cyber-attacks.

Procurement tenders

Many businesses will not work with businesses who do not obtain this certification. By meeting this standard, you can open up a range of opportunities to work with these types of businesses.

Credibility and trust

You must be able to demonstrate to your key stakeholders and customers that you have a robust security strategy in place. By complying with a government recognised standard you will build credibility.

GDPR compliance

Modern regulations require you to have an understanding how to handle data and the risks. By obtaining this certification, your business will be better prepared to address these compliance requirements.
