What is Cyber Essensitials?

The UK Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme announced in June 2014 aims to drive awareness of the risks posed by cybercrime, and help smaller enterprises delivering products or services to the UK public sector to defend their IT systems, networks and customers’ data from attacks.

Cyber Essentials has a primary aim to protect businesses against common cyber threats. Companies that are Cyber Essentials accredited are equipped to protect themselves against 80% of threats, as they learn how to implement the best security measures.

The scheme focuses on five essential mitigation strategies within the context of the 10 Steps to Cyber Security guide. It provides you with clear guidance on implementation as well as offering independent certification for those who require it.

The adoption of standards and certification for cyber-security can enable your organisation, and all stakeholders, to have greater confidence in your ability to measure and reduce basic cyber risks, as it demonstrates that you have been independently assessed. The scheme focuses on 5 key controls.
