What is Cyber Essentials
Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, and industry supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber attacks.
According to the UK Government, over 70% of cyber attacks could be prevented if organisations put simple cyber security controls in place.
Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They are the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked. Our advice is designed to prevent these attacks.
The benefits of getting certification
Cyber Essentials can help your organisation in many ways:
- Reassures customers that you take cyber security seriously
- Attracts new business with the promise that you have cyber security measures in place
- Enables you to bid for government project
