What is Cyber Essentials Certification?

Why Do You Need Cyber Essentials?

Cyber-crime is one of the fastest growing areas of crime and affects many businesses, in a variety of ways. From hackers to data theft, online criminals can seek out areas of weakness in your business and leave you trying to pick up the pieces.

Achieving Cyber Essentials certification means that your business is recognised as having the right controls in place to stop cyber-attacks. Not only is this reassuring to you; it also gives your customers peace of mind. It’s also been indicated by business insurers that Cyber Essentials certification is a valuable indicator of a good approach to cyber security, which might mean more favourable policies.
