Get your business Cyber Essentials Certified
What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber essentials is a government backed scheme that shows you’re doing everything you can to protect yourselves from cyber attacks and to protect your client’s data. This is a fundamental requirement of the new EU GDPR Regulations.
Cyber Essentials helps to protect your organisation from the most common cyber threats, which are predominantly carried out by relatively unskilled criminals. Cyber essentials is designed to prevent these attacks.
Cyber Essentials is now a requirement for businesses within the public sector and other organisations are expected to follow suit.
What we offer
Cyber Essentials Certificate (Unassisted) – £300 +vat
We understand that some businesses already have the necessary IT knowledge to be able to carry out all of the necessary preparation for this certification. In this instance, you will complete the self-assessment questionnaire yourself and we will perform the external scan. We will then review the results of both and a certificate will be issued if passed.
Cyber Essentials Certificate (on site assistance) – fixed cost £600 +vat
We offer a fixed cost on site consultation to work with you to complete the self-assessment questionnaire whilst helping you to understand and identify any weaknesses in your security and provide assistance and recommendations to help secure your business against any risks to achieve a pass.
IT Security Essentials for your Business
KEEPING SOFTWARE UP TO DATE
Keeping software up to date is critical. Whatever software you are using hackers will find it easier to get into old versions. Keeping on top of patches and fixes is a great way to help to keep you protected. Ensuring you are on the latest version of your software is also critical for your security plan.
BACKUPS AND BACKUP TESTING
The number one defence against cyber attacks. Offsite and local backups are essential, so are the testing of those backups. If your backup does not restore as expected it’s a failure. When did you last test the backups in your business?
You can have all the firewalls, Anti Virus, Anti Malware but leave the front door unlocked and that’s it! Keeping servers locked away and limit access to key staff is again very simple but it can really save you from disaster.
