What is Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials is a cost-effective assurance scheme for small and medium sized enterprises which is backed by the UK government. It helps you demonstrate to customers and other stakeholders that the most important cybersecurity controls have been implemented and it is a prerequisite for public sector suppliers.

Why is this important

Cyber Essentials can prevent 80% of cyberattacks. Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.
