Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme that helps organizations protect themselves from common cyber attacks. Benefits of becoming Cyber Essential certified include:
✅ Improve your security posture and reduce your cyber risk. By getting the basics right will protect you against 80% of common cyber attacks, simply by meeting the Cyber Essentials requirements.
✅ Win new business - attracting new clients who are increasingly looking at cyber security as part of their due diligence and supply chain management. Some contracts and tenders, particularly from UK government or local authorities, require Cyber Essentials certification.
✅ Improve your reputation and trust - reassure existing clients by demonstrating that your organization takes cyber security seriously and has a good level of protection in place. Once accredited you can display the Cyber Essentials badge on your website and marketing materials.
