Cyber Essentials

Security certification for your business with Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a UK certification scheme for a business to show that you have a level of protection in cyber security. This is then maintained through annual assessments to keep your certification. 

The scheme is back by the UK Government and overseen by the Cyber Security Centre.

There are two levels of badges that your business can apply for:

  • Essentials
    Requires the business to complete a self-assessment questionnaire, with responses independently reviewed by an external certifying body.
  • Essentials Plus
    This covers the same requirements as Essentials, but tests of the systems are carried out by an external certifying body, using a range of tools and techniques.

GCC can assist you in becoming Cyber Essentials ready and guide you through the examination and audit process.

We can offer IT solutions that cover the main criteria, Boundary Firewalls, Patch Management, Malware Protection, Secure Configuration and Access management.

An attack could also put off your customers, stop you trading and damage your hard-earned reputation.

Having a Cyber Essentials badge will:

  • Protect your business against common cyber threats
  • Show your customers you take this issue seriously
