Cyber Essentials (verified self-assessed)

Cyber Essentials is an online verified self-assessment that helps you assess and align your organisation’s current information security posture to the Cyber Essentials baseline standard. 

Obtaining the certification permits an organisation to advertise publicly that their organisation is Cyber Essentials compliant for 1 year from pass date, at which point you would need to renew your certificate to ensure continued compliancePerforming the Cyber Essentials certification can be a good opportunity to take stock of how securely your network is setup, so you can be confident everything set up as securely as you would expect. Completing the self-assessment can also help identify oversights in your device/network security and procedures that you may not have considered previously, or help harden your current system. 

Organisations that are certified to Cyber Essentials will automatically receive £25000 of Cyber Insurance if they certify their entire organisation, are domiciled in the UK and their annual turnover is under £20m. You may opt out of this offer.
