Cyber Essentials Certification

The Cyber Essentials Basic is a self-assessment certification. The client organisation will be provided with a questionnaire about your security controls and you will need to submit the answers as per your infrastructure setup. There is no onsite assessment for this stage.

Cyber Essentials Plus Certification

Cyber Essentials Plus starts with self-assessment questionnaire, an external vulnerability scan of Internet facing systems as well as an internal vulnerability assessment of your internal workstations and mobile devices. We will review the self-assessment questionnaire then arrange an onsite visit to test your internal workstations and mobile devices. If all elements of testing pass you will be issued a Cyber Essentials Plus certificate and can use the certified badge.
