What is Cyber Essentials?

As part of its drive to get the UK protected from cyber threats, the Government has developed the Cyber Essentials scheme which helps organisations protect themselves from basic internet security threats.

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a key deliverable of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme. It delivers the basic controls that all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet-based threats.


Why do you need Cyber Essentials?

With Cyber Essentials, you can prevent around 80% of cyber-attacks. (HM Government 2016)

The scheme provides a mechanism for you to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that you have taken essential precautions to secure your organisation against the majority of cyber risks.

The scheme will also increase your opportunities within the private sector as it is required for UK Government contracts that involve the handling of personal and sensitive information.
