Cyber Essentials for Business

Cyber Essentials for Business | ACS 365

Cyber Essentials lets everyone know that you take Cyber Security seriously. It informs others that you have measures in place to keep their information secure.

As an IASME Licensed Certification Body ACS offers fixed fee packages of consultancy, audit, and certification for organisations seeking to secure Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus security standards.

Get the minimum requirement with Cyber Essentials

Basic Cyber Essentials certification involves a self-assessment. This is where your organisation completes a questionnaire confirming and detailing the measures that are in place regarding cyber security. Your self-assessment questionnaire will be verified by a certification body. This is to determine whether or not the standard has been achieved. If successful, your organisation will be awarded Cyber Essentials certification.

Go the extra mile with Cyber Essentials Plus

Be one of the early adopters in the UK to achieve Cyber Essentials PLUS accreditation with ACS At the basics, Cyber Essentials is well known to be achievable as a self-assessment, and often less weight with commercial clients. If your business mostly operates with private clients, this may not be a concern. However, if you have a significant number of clients in the commercial sector, you should consider Cyber Essentials Plus. Whilst essentially the same standard, to obtain the plus certification your firm will need to be independently tested. This is to ensure the technical controls are adequately enforced.

ACS technical experts understand the complexity of the requirements. We can meet the assessors’ needs with minimum cost in a timely way. Cyber Essentials Plus will incur a greater cost due to the need for on-site testing. The time and cost will depend on the complexity and size of your organisation, the number of offices and whether you require consultancy or support with implementation. Cyber Essentials Plus also requires completing the self-assessment questionnaire. A Cyber Essentials Assessor from the Certification Body will also visit your workplace to carry out on-site testing of your organisation’s cyber security measures.

Whatever level you choose, your certification will be valid for one year, after which the process must be repeated. ACS will keep you compliant.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government-backed standard. The scheme guards against the most common Cyber Security threats:

  • Firewalls and internet gateways
  • Secure configuration
  • Access control, e.g. passwords and access levels
  • Malware and virus protection
  • Patch management – e.g. ensuring that the latest supported software versions are in use.
