Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials helps you to guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate your commitment to cyber security.

The Cyber Essentials certification comes in two flavours:

Cyber Essentials - Obtained by implementing the 5 controls and completing a self-assessment questionnaire. The questionnaire is reviewed, and your external internet accessible systems are scanned for vulnerabilities.

Cyber Essentials Plus - All of the Cyber Essentials requirements plus an Internal System audit including Workstations, Mobile Devices, Host and Gateway Malware Testing.

Cyber Essentials certification is awarded when you successfully implement 5 controls. Those control will:
  • Secure your Internet connection
  • Secure your devices and software
  • Control access to your data and services
  • Protect from viruses and other malware
  • Keep your devices and software up to date
  • Cyber Essentials is a UK government assurance scheme, based on guidance by the NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre).


    It has two functions:

    To set out the five basic cyber security controls that organisations should implement to protect themselves from “around 80% of common cyber attacks.”

    To provide a simple and affordable mechanism – through the Assurance Framework's two levels of independent certification, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus – for organisations to demonstrate that they have implemented essential cyber security measures.
