In today’s ever-evolving digital landscape, cyber threats pose a constant and significant risk to businesses of all sizes. A data breach can be devastating, leading to financial losses, reputational damage and potential legal repercussions.

This is where the Cyber Essentials scheme comes in handy, providing a practical and cost-effective solution to enhance your organisation’s digital defences, but also to show the world that providing a practical and cost-effective solution takes pride in its defences.

Cyber Essentials is a Government backed cybersecurity scheme which is overseen by the National Cyber Security Centres (NCSC), designed to help businesses of all sizes guard against the most common cyber threats.

It is an investment in your business’s digital resilience that delivers tangible benefits of showing your commitment to data security as well as strengthening your cyber defences. It provides a clear framework for implementing basic cyber security controls that significantly reduce the risk of falling victim to attacks like malware, phishing and ransomware.

There are two levels of certification available:

  • Cyber Essentials – this is the entry-level certification and covers the essential technical controls that all businesses should have in place.
  • Cyber Essentials Plus – this builds on the core controls and adds additional verification measures to further strengthen your defences.
