Cyber Essentials Plus


What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry supported foundation for basic cyber security hygiene. The Scheme has been carefully designed to guide organisations of any size in protecting themselves against cyber threats. The scheme offers two levels of certification, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.

What is the difference between Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus?

The scheme offers two levels of certification:

  1. Cyber Essentials is self-assessed and independently verified
  2. Cyber Essentials Plus includes an independent technical audit.

Cyber Essentials Plus with a robust Assurance Framework providing an independent validation. Cyber Essentials Plus provides a greater level of assurance following successful completion of external vulnerability testing.

If you would like to discuss the best option for your organisation, please contact us.


What happens next?

Following successful certification against Cyber Essentials, you may apply for Cyber Essentials Plus certification.  Discuss your requirements with us and once the assessment scope is determined, we will arrange a visit to your site by one of our consultants who will conduct a range of external and internal technical verification tests of your network and web application security.

As a result of the ongoing assessment, it may be necessary for us to advise you to make changes in order for you to successfully attain the Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
