Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective Government backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common Cyber-attacks.

Cyber-attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They are the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it is unlocked. Our advice is designed to prevent these attacks.

There are two levels of certification:

Cyber Essentials
Our self-assessment option gives you protection against a wide variety of the most common CYBER-ATTACKS. This is important because vulnerability to simple attacks can mark you out as target for more in-depth unwanted attention from cyber criminals and others.

Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common CYBER-ATTACKS simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

Cyber Essentials shows you how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks.

Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections you need to put in place are the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out in addition to the self-assessment.

How can CTO Help?

Completing the self-assessment can be quite taxing.  As your Managed Service Provider, CTO is ideally placed to help you accomplish the certification.  This will involve some collaboration between you and us, but we can take most of the strain away from the process.

Plus, when a UK-domiciled organisation with a turnover under £20m achieves self-assessed certification covering their whole organisation to either the basic level of Cyber Essentials or the IASME Standard, they are entitled to Cyber Liability Insurance for the period of the certification up to £25,000, terms apply.
