If you’re thinking of achieving Cyber Essentials certification then you are making a wise decision. With online crime on the rise and customers looking for assurance that your business can protect their data adequately, Cyber Essentials is a great indicator that you take security seriously. But how do you achieve the certification and how can we help?
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed cyber security certification scheme that shows your business has a good level of cyber security. It’s suitable for all organisations in all sectors. The scheme addresses five key controls that, when implemented correctly, can prevent around 80% of cyber-attacks.
