Why become Cyber Essentials Plus certified?
Cyber Essentials Plus is the step above Cyber Essentials which involves a detailed on-site vulnerability assessment of your organisation carried out by our cyber security experts. Completing the certification allows your organisation to display the official Cyber Essentials Plus badge, which demonstrates that you take your cyber security seriously and that you have met government requirements to respond to the threat.
Cyber Essentials is mandatory for central government contracts advertised after 1 October 2014 which involve handling personal information and providing certain ICT products and services. Find out more here.
