What is Cyber Essentials?

The Cyber Essentials accreditation is backed by the National Cyber Security Centre which is part of the Government Communication Head Quarters (GCHQ). This means that in terms of cybersecurity, this accreditation is backed by the same organisation that defends Government systems from cyber threats.

Providing methods of protection and practical techniques for the security of IT equipment, data and computers within organisations, the concept of Cyber Essentials is simple – to keep your business safe against all kinds of security threats and risks. The invaluable advice and guidelines that Cyber Essentials supplies represent exactly what a modern organisation needs to do to maintain a high level of security and safety in the modern working world.

What does it mean to be Cyber Essentials Accredited?

Being accredited by Cyber Essentials is a stamp of approval, which proves just how seriously we take the care and management of our data and IT systems, in order to maintain the best level of security possible. The certification process is designed to be streamlined and fit into a day-to-day routine, as well as being easily managed over time.

According to Cyber Essentials, the goal of the accreditation is to improve knowledge and reduce the risk from some of the most severe threats out there online, including hacking, phishing and password guessing. It’s no longer enough to do the bare minimum when it comes to your digital security – and that’s why we strive to be as qualified as possible when it comes to our system security.

An accreditation by Cyber Essentials indicates that the business in question has secured all IT services within their business, including desktops, laptops, tablets, mobile phones and even networks and servers, as well as taking action to improve overall cybersecurity in a way that works for any type of business – from non-profits to global businesses.

Our accredited status means we’ve made the commitment to ensure our customer’s data and their information is as secure as possible, to keep up to date with the latest in cybersecurity and to forge new IT policies and plans that can only benefit our business – and yours.
