Why do you need Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials covers everything businesses should do to protect from cyberattacks. Think of it as ‘cyber hygiene’ – a bit like washing your hands, brushing your teeth or wearing a face mask.

Simply being certified can reduce cyber risk by up to 98.5%. It’s a great way to demonstrate to new customers and partners that you take cybersecurity seriously – helping businesses grow and stay safe.

Increased demands from customers and suppliers to be Cyber Essentials certified.

What is the difference between Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus?

The main difference is how the results are certified. Cyber Essential Plus is verified by an assessor. Whereas Cyber Essentials is self-assessed.
