Prevent breaches, retain customers and win new business.
What is Cyber Essentials and Why Do You Need It?
Cyber Essentials is more than just cyber security. A cyber breach can be costly for your business, not only financially, but also for your reputation.
This government-backed scheme helps protect your business against the most common cyber threats, reducing the risk of a cyber-attack by up to 80%.
Set yourself apart and win business, by demonstrating that you are serious about security. Your suppliers, partners and clients will feel more confident in sharing sensitive data and personal information with you. Some organisations, such as the MoD and Local Authorities will only consider tenders from suppliers with Cyber Essentials Certification.
The certification process addresses five key controls:
- Secure Configuration
- User Access Control
- Malware Protection
- Patch Management
