What is Cyber Essentials?

It is an information assurance scheme launched in 2014 by the UK government (the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, to be more precise) and maintained by the National Cyber Security Centre. Its purpose is to encourage enterprises to embrace good practices in information security, covering an assurance framework and a simple set of security controls in order to protect information from internet threats.

Cyber Essentials

It was implemented in partnership with major industry representatives, including the Information Security Forum, the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises Consortium and the British Standards Institution.

Why Is This Certificate So Important?

The certificate is awarded upon successful completion of a verified self-assessment. A company certified in accordance with the Cyber Essentials scheme can be sure that its basic cyber security controls have been implemented correctly. So can its clients.
