Cyber Essentials is a UK government-backed scheme designed to help organisations assess and mitigate risks from common cyber security threats by enforcing a set of security controls within the IT systems.
The Cyber Essentials certificate helps an organisation demonstrate the ability to:
- Identify potential risks to help organisations better protect against common cyber threats.
- Demonstrate an organisation has adopted the proper security controls to protect customer data.
- Become compliant with UK government expectations for Cyber Security Essential requirements and eligible to bid for UK government contracts.
The methodology has defined two different levels of certification:
- Cyber Essentials is the first level and includes a self-assessment for organisations to check the most important IT security controls of their IT infrastructure. The responses are independently reviewed by an external certifying body.
- Cyber Essentials PLUS offers the same controls coverage as Cyber Essentials and also includes additional assurance by carrying out systems tests of implemented controls through an authorised third-party certifying body.
