Cyber Essentials Certification

Assistance with your Cyber Essentials Certification from Alliance Solutions

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

Why is Cyber Essentials certification important?

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

  • Reassure customers that you have taken steps to secure your business against cyber attacks
  • Help attract new customers by demonstrating you have cybersecurity 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.

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 properly 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 can normally be completed in just one or two days.

How to 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 to ensure a fully independent audit.

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