Cyber Essentials

Testing and Certification

Cyber Essentials is a UK government framework that sets out basic security controls to safeguard businesses against around 80% of common internet cyber-attacks.

Get in Touch



Cyber Essentials includes a self-assessment questionnaire and an external vulnerability scan; ‘Plus’ Certification includes an additional internal scan and an on-site assessment.

Cyber Essentials certification is a base level security assessment, however if your employees work from remote locations, or third parties have access to your premises or IT, then ‘Plus’ certification may be the option for you.

Why you need it and what it covers

Certification demonstrates security in the supply chain and when implemented can prevent around 80% of cyber attacks.

The assessment covers firewalls, secure configurations, access control, malware protection and patch management.

Carrying out the assessment

We will assess your alignment to the Cyber Essentials Plus scheme. Following the test, a score is given along with a technical remediation plan that will need to be implemented to achieve certification.

Fixing Vulnerabilities and Retesting

Once we have remediated vulnerabilities and improved your security posture, we can look to approve you for Cyber Essentials Certification.
