Cyber Essentials Certification
The Cyber Essentials scheme is a key deliverable of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme. Realising that the controls in the 10 Steps to Cyber Security were not being implemented effectively, and that no existing, individual standard met its specific requirement, the government developed the Cyber Essentials scheme.
Cyber Essentials was developed in collaboration with industry partners such as the Information Security Forum and the British Standards Institution.
With over 80% of UK businesses vulnerable to avoidable security threats, the Cyber Essentials framework has been designed as a strong security baseline for every business in every industry. Mapping against five simple key controls means it’s easy to achieve Cyber Essentials certification with the right help.
Businesses falling victim to an attack have decreased by 10% since 2017. This is due to increased defences against cyber-attacks alike the controls in the scheme.
