About Cyber Essentials


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

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that helps protect your organisation, against a range of the most common cyber-attacks.

Cyber-attacks come in many different forms, but the vast majority are basic in nature.  Often carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They are the digital equivalent of a thief trying for an unlocked front door.

There are two levels of certification:

Cyber Essentials

A self-assessment option that gives you protection against a wide variety of the most common cyber-attacks. Vulnerability to simple attacks can mark you out as a target for more in-depth, unwanted attention from cyber criminals.

Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against most common cyber-attacks. Attackers are looking for targets who do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections you need. But, with Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out.
