Cyber Essentials is a way of protecting your business against the increasing and real danger of a cyber attack. It is vital to implement controls that significantly reduce the risk of a cyber attack on your organisation.
The Cyber Essentials scheme is supported by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and is the minimum cyber security requirement for the entire government supply chain.
It is available to all businesses and on average prevents around 80% of cyber attacks and, if you opt in, can include £25,000 worth of cyber insurance to help you recover from an accidental or deliberate cyber breach.
The scheme also demonstrates your commitment to building a secure foundation for your IT system and your organisation is dedicated to protecting the data you hold.
