Cyber security is a hot topic and any business can be at risk, which is why it pays to protect your organisation. Good cyber security not only keeps your business safe, it helps your clients and customers feel more secure in working with you.


Key benefits

  • Keep your cyber security up to date and relevant by finding and fixing any threats and weaknesses in your current policies.
  • Peace of mind for you and your customers that your online security is in place and is up to date.
  • Compliance and assurances when tendering for contracts.
  • Industry standard policies for each member of staff to understand and follow
  • Affordable accreditation for businesses of all sizes, recognised throughout the UK.
  • Insurance underwritten by Lloyds against cyber attacks.
  • Accreditation complete within three months

Who's it for

  • Any type or size of business that takes cyber security seriously and would like to put approved procedures in place can take part in the Cyber Essentials scheme.
  • Any business that would like impartial specialist testing of their current security policies.
  • Most tenders will ask what you’re doing to keep information safe, so if you’re regularly producing tenders this accreditation can show you have the appropriate controls in place.
  • If you’re applying for central government contracts, you will need to be accredited.
  • If you’re not producing tenders, you may still want to put procedures and controls in place to protect your business and your clients’ information.
