What is Cyber Essentials Certification?

Cyber Essentials is a cyber security certification standard led by the UK government. Gaining certification shows that your organisation understands cyber security and has a set of required measures in place to prevent cyberattacks.

Why is Cyber Essentials certification important?

Cyber Essentials certification shows that your organisation takes cyber security and data protection seriously. Specifically, it can:

  • Reassure customers that you have taken steps to secure your business against cyberattacks
  • Help attract new customers by demonstrating you have cyber security measures in place
  • Show that you have a clear picture of your organisation’s cyber security level
  • Enable you to bid for Government contracts which require Cyber Essentials certification.

Some business insurers are actually starting to require Cyber Essentials certification and it is likely that many businesses will follow suit for B2B relationships.

If desired, Alliance Solutions can also help you attain a more advanced certification called Cyber Essentials Plus.

How can Alliance Solutions help with Cyber Essentials certification?

Alliance Solutions’ cybersecurity consultants can help you prepare for Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus assessments, in order to attain your certification.

In line with the expectations of a Cyber Essentials assessment, we can deploy a range of vulnerability scans and network security audits to:

  • Ensure your organisation is fully prepared for the Cyber Essentials assessment
  • Help draft security procedures
  • Boost your chances of first-time certification for your organisation

Our Cyber Essentials support and consultancy can normally fit around your existing business schedule and is usually completed in just one or two days.

How can your business gain Cyber Essentials certification?

Once you are prepared, you must complete an online questionnaire to assess whether your organisation meets the required standards covered.

We help you complete your pre-assessment work and then appoint a Cyber Essentials-accredited body to carry out your assessment, ensuring a fully independent audit.

Your Cyber Essentials certification assessor will then review your responses and if successful, your certificate will be awarded.
