Protecting Businesses with Cyber Essentials.

Written by

The lack of basic cyber security controls remains a significant factor in the vast majority of cyber attacks in the UK today. Businesses are left worried about hackers, data loss and security, and are not sure where to turn.

The scale of the threat is nothing new.  The media now regularly covering stories of data breaches, hacking and ICO fines.  Nearly half of businesses experienced a cyber breach or attack in the past year, and with the upcoming the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), costs relating to breaches will rise significantly.

The impact and disruption caused by attacks on businesses can be very serious, with impacts on resourcing, availability, cash flow, data and the company’s reputation itself is at risk.

Cyber Essentials focuses on key areas of security and leads to a large reduction in risks to businesses.  The Cyber Essentials scheme is well established with over 10,000 certificates now awarded since its launch on 5th June 2014. There has been a sharp uptake in recent months with more and more businesses contacting us about how to gain certification.

Cyber Essentials will help protect your business, is quick and easy to use, helps you understand where your cyber controls are in good order and where improvements can be made.  It also provides the ability to bid on restricted contracts, provides a certification to build confidence with new and existing clients and you will be recognised as a business that takes customer data and cyber security seriously.
