What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme which was launched in 2014 by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills. The primary aim of the scheme is to encourage organisations to adopt best practices in their information security strategy, in turn making the UK a safer place to do business. The Cyber Essentials scheme brings several benefits to companies looking to get certified, here’s the five most important reasons:

  1. Helps understand your internal security status
  2. Protect against common security threats
  3. Demonstrate your customer your maturity on security
  4. Prepares yourself for GDPR
  5. Enables your organisation to bid for government contracts

What does Cyber Essentials mean to our business?

Getting a Cyber Essentials certification means that Defendza has successfully met a set of requirements set by NCSC. Cyber Essentials basic and Cyber Essentials plus are based off the same list of requirements and, therefore, are the same standard. Having this certification provides an assurance to our clients that we take data protection seriously
