The Cyber Essentials Scheme

Cyber Essentials is an effective scheme backed by the UK government involving an audit built around five basic technical controls, specifically designed to prevent the most common cyber-attacks. Organisations that are Cyber Essentials certified can demonstrate and reassure customers that they are serious about cyber security and safeguarding the integrity of their clients' data.

Cyber Essentials Bundles

Our bundles offer businesses varying support levels towards obtaining certification, whether that is Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus.
