Benefits of Cyber Essentials

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.

  • Reassure customers that you are working to secure your IT against cyber attack.
  • Attract new business with the promise you have cyber security measures in place.
  • Give a clear picture of your organisation’s cyber security level.
  • Grow business as some Government contracts require Cyber Essentials certification.
