About The Cyber Essentials Scheme

The scheme was specially developed by the UK Government and National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) to make the UK a safer place to live and do business online. The certification process has been designed to support any business, from large established corporate organisations to new start up SMEs, with a manageable approach to cyber security.

As an information security standard, the Cyber Essentials scheme offers an affordable and effective level of assurance for businesses of all sizes and comes in two levels: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials PLUS. The programme sets out 5 key technical controls to help businesses with cyber protection, which when implemented will protect you against the most common cyber threats. In fact, the cyber security certification aims to reduce an organisations’ risk of attack from internet-borne threats by around 80%.

Widely recognised as a benchmark of good cyber hygiene, certified companies demonstrate that they have taken the necessary steps to safeguard sensitive data and maximise cyber protection. Furthermore, a valid Cyber Essentials certificate is increasingly required within supply chains and is compulsory for any business bidding on Government and UK defence contracts.
