Cyber Essentials Logo

Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme that outlines the 5 technical controls an organisation must have to ensure an effective level of security. The technical controls are firewalls, secure configuration, user access control, malware protection and patch management. The NCSC has assured organisations that with Cyber Essentials, the most common cyber-attacks can be prevented.  

What To Expect

As the threat landscape evolves, the technical requirements can be updated by IASME (governing body) to reflect new security vulnerabilities. An organisation needs to reapply for the Cyber Essentials certification every 12 months, this validates that your current security protocols are effective in the current threat landscape.

Rest assured that your organisation is protected and minimising the risk of attack from the most common cyber threats, year after year.
