Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme to help strengthen the cybersecurity of all UK SMEs through a certification system that checks a number of possible security flaws in your systems & practices. We can perform the accreditation checks for Cyber Essentials, but we also offer a Plus service where we check above and beyond the essentials to ensure your organisation is future-proof when it comes to cyber threats.

Our Cyber Essentials Plus service isn’t just to tick the boxes of regulators, but to provide real peace of mind to your customers, shareholders, and stakeholders – assurance that your organisation takes digital security seriously.

What is this important?

Having a Cyber Essentials accreditation can prevent up to 80% of cyberattacks because a significant portion of cyberattacks depend on luck and poor defences. This certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyberattacks as attackers also tend to target those who do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

How can we help you?

Our experts at Arcturus Security, part of the Cyberfort Group, have IASME Cyber Essentials status to assess and certify organisations under the National Cybersecurity Centre Cyber Essentials Scheme. Our cyber consulting team can help you verify your systems and confirm that you’re on the right track with regards to your security foundations.

Cyber Essentials Plus can increase your opportunities

Having a Cyber Essentials certification allows you to bid on UK Government contracts that involve the handling of confidential data. It can also improve your opportunities of working within the private sector through increasing trust in your ability to handle data safely. 

In fact, since some Private & Government contracts actually require Cyber Essentials certification, you’ll never miss out on opportunities.

Cyber Essentials Plus makes you alert

Repelling common cyber attacks is a routine process but their sheer number makes it particularly dangerous. 

Even a single success for cybercriminals can be devastating for your organisation’s safety and integrity in the eyes of those who rely on your services. That’s why it is important to defend against every malware or social engineering threat.

By partnering with a cyber consulting expert, your business can swiftly move towards increased alertness with services like cybersecurity penetration testing and cyber threat intelligence. Contact us >
