Have you heard of Cyber Essentials?

Posted on by Neil Kemp of Network and Security

 

Are you looking to secure your business but not sure how or where to even start?
Cyber essentials is considered the best first step to a more secure business.

 

This simple yet effective scheme will help you protect your business from the most common cyber-attacks.

 

It works a little like this:

 

You fill out a self-assessment online which includes 60 odd questions that require simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers.

 

However, since you fill it out yourself, there’s a lot of people who believe it doesn’t hold much value. That’s why Cyber Essentials Plus includes an IT professional who carries out an audit and verifies that what you’ve said in the self-assessment is actually true.

 

The assessor will then grant you your certification which you can show off to your clients by posting the badge on social media and your website. That way you will gain your clients’ trust by assuring them you take cyber-security seriously.
