Cyber Essentials

What is Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials Certification is a Government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats.

CE is a set of basic technical controls to help businesses protect themselves against online threats. It is beneficial for all businesses, no matter the size, or sector.

We aim to make the programme as straightforward as possible, and having the CE certification can assure you that your defences will protect against the majority of common cyber attacks, because the attacks look for targets without these controls in place, giving your organisation and your customers, peace of mind.

The Benefits

Protect your organisation from common threats

CE technical controls help to protect your organisation from a large variety of the most common cyber threats. This is important as when you are vulnerable to simple attacks, you become a larger target for criminals further down the road.

Increase your credibility and reputation

Customers will have reassurance that you are prioritising securing your business, and working to secure your IT against cyber attacks. A CE certification will work to reassure existing customers and attract new business, whilst reaffirming your reputation as a secure organisation.

Win government contracts

Cyber Essentials has become obligatory for many government contracts to ensure that their suppliers are meeting a basic level of security. Certification means that you will be ahead of the curve, and ahead of the competition when bidding for government contracts.

Open business opportunities

As well as having the ability to bid for government tenders, a CE certification will help your organisation to win new business by not only displaying a commitment to cyber security, but by also demonstrating your cyber credentials.

Be eligible for free cyber insurance cover

Cyber Essentials certification also includes automatic cyber liability insurance for any UK organisation who certifies their whole organisation and have less than £20m annual turnover ( terms apply.)
