Our UK Cyber Essentials, Cyber Essentials Plus and ISO 27001 services

Data is one of the most important assets a business has, and protecting it from compromise, corruption or total loss is of paramount importance. The Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus services and ISO 27001 framework exist to help organisations with their information protection needs.

ISO 27001

ISO 27001 aims to protect information regardless of where it is found (paper, information systems, digital media etc).

Cyber Essentials Plus

Our UK Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus services aim to protect data and programmes on networks, computers, servers and other elements of an IT infrastructure.

Our team of security and compliance experts can help businesses become certified to both frameworks, giving you and your customers reassurance that data is secure.

ISO 27001 Framework

ISO 27001 can be a complex and time-consuming activity so why not enlist the help of our security and compliance teams who, can conduct a Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus audit, having been through our own certification process several times. They can carry out a Cyber Essentials company check and are in a great position to complete this process for you. Our UK based Cyber Essentials services can:

1

Establish the scope of the ISMS (Information Security Management System)

2

Perform a gap analysis against ISO27001 controls

3

Create an asset register and risk assessment

4

Create the policies and establish the organisation of the ISMS including roles and responsibilities

5

Embed the policies and procedures through staff awareness and implementation of processes

6

Take your business through the Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus audit

Cyber Essentials Framework

The Cyber Essential Certification is a Cyber Essentials audit built around five basic technical controls, specifically designed to prevent the most common cyber-attacks, which include malware, ransomware, and phishing. Obtaining this standard enables certified organisations to demonstrate and reassure their customers that they are serious about safeguarding the integrity of their data.
