What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed cyber security certification scheme. It defines basic cyber security measures that according to the government, could prevent up to 80% of cyber attacks.
Every business is a target for cyber attacks and Cyber Essentials is a mechanism that organisations of any type and size can use to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken essential precautions to secure their information against the majority of these threats.
With the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the horizon, every business will soon have to enforce strict protection of personal data or face serious penalties. By implementing Cyber Essentials and the scheme's five security protocols to provide a basic level of protection from the vast majority of cyber attacks, you'll demonstrate that your business is taking the necessary steps to mitigate risk. Plus you can rest assured knowing your data is protected and focus on managing your business.
