Cyber Essentials.

What is Cyber Essentials?

The Cyber Essentials scheme provides businesses small and large with clarity on good basic cyber security practice. It enables your company to be better protected from the most common cyber threats. Cyber Essentials is not limited to companies in the private sector, but is also applicable to universities, charities, and public sector organisations of all sizes.

It is widely recognised that around 80% of cyber attacks could be prevented if businesses implemented simple security controls, and that the Cyber Essentials scheme achieves just that.

Since October 2014, Cyber Essentials has become mandatory for central government contracts which involve handling personal information and providing certain ICT products and services. The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed as part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme and in close consultation with industry.

The controls required for basic technical cyber protection are:

1. Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
2. Secure Configuration
3. User access control
4. Malware protection
5. Patch management

What are the benefits of compliance?
