Cyber Essentials for business
New tool launched to support organisations achieve Cyber Essentials Certification
Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme that helps businesses to protect themselves from common cyber-attacks and demonstrates their commitment to cybersecurity. Some government contracts require businesses to be Cyber Essentials certified. There are two levels of certification, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.
TheCyber Essentials Readiness Tool, which has been developed by IASME on behalf of the National Cyber Security Centre – a part of Government Communication Head Quarters – asks organisations a series of questions related to the main Cyber Essentials criteria to help prepare them for certification.
Through the Cyber Essentials scheme, businesses can learn how to defend themselves by securing internet connections and devices, controlling access to data, and understanding how to protect against malware.
