How much does Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus cost in 2023?
This is the most frequently asked question about the Cyber Essentials certification. What is the cost for Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certification in 2023? Previously there used to be a fixed cost for businesses of all sizes. However, in 2022 NCSC and IASME updated the pricing to suit the company sizes. This is a fixed cost and the certification body cannot charge you more unless you need extra help which is a separate cost. Please note there is defined fixed cost for Cyber Essentials plus certification. Each certification body may charge you differently.
In order to achieve Cyber Essentials plus you will need to have a valid Cyber Essentials self-assessment certificate that is no more than 3months old. Otherwise you will need to achieve CE first then apply for CE plus. TechForce CE plus cost include the CE too. You do not need to pay for the software licences that are used in the certification process. Please see below for the pricing.
