Cyber Essentials Certification
As trained practitioners, we can help your business become Cyber Essentials certified.
Not only does this certification demonstrate good cyber hygiene, but it can also help to build trust amongst your customers; as it proves you have taken the necessary steps to safeguard sensitive data.
What is Cyber Essentials?
The Cyber Essentials certification helps you to safeguard your business against common cyber threats, whilst simultaneously demonstrating your commitment to cyber security.
It was developed in collaboration by the UK Government, and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), with the aim of reducing an organisations’ risk of attack by up to 80%.
Whilst learning cyber security essentials, you’ll learn the key controls to put in place to mitigate your business’ potential risk to phishing, hacking, password guessing, malicious employees and any untended mistakes, in addition to malware and viruses.
There are five key areas of the certification:
- Access control
- Malware protection
- Secure configuration and network management
- Updating software and patch tests
The Cyber Essentials certification is becoming increasingly required within supply chains, and is compulsory for any businesses who are bidding on UK defense and Government contracts.
