Cyber Essentials assurance scheme

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government backed assurance scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online cyber security threats.

Cyber attacks cost organisations like yours thousands of pounds and cause lengthy periods of disruption. Do you have a plan for what you would do if your customer database was stolen, your website was forced offline, or you couldn’t access your email or business-critical data?

Cyber criminals don’t just attack banks and large companies – they target any organisation which isn’t properly protected, even small businesses.

Get Cyber Essentials

  • Cyber Essentials Certification
  • Demonstrate a robust security stance
  • Maintain the trust of your clients, partners and investors

The majority of cyber attacks exploit basic weaknesses in your IT systems and software. Even a simple virus or piece of malware could result in loss of company and client data, disrupt your cashflow and take up staff time. An attack could also put off your customers, stop you trading and damage your hard-earned reputation. It could also be reported in the local media. Loss of data could breach the Data Protection Act and lead to fines or prosecution.

Cyber Essentials certification shows that you know how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks. The scheme is designed by Government to make it easy for you to protect yourself.
