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 a Cyber Essentials certification.
It pays to get it right the first time. ACS will get you ready.
The basic level of Cyber Essentials certification starts at £450 ex VAT. This is for a straightforward certification assessment involving verification of a self-assessment. If any issues are identified during the verification, your business will have two days to correct them. If the issues are not corrected, you will have to submit a new self-assessment. Upon this date a further £400 will be payable, and so on. As a result, only someone familiar with the scheme should consider taking it on themselves.
