Process Process

There are two types of Cyber essentials certifications. Cyber essentials standard and cyber essentials plus.

STEP 1 – CYBER ESSENTIALS STANDARD 

Firstly, a Cyber Security specialist will visit you and conduct a basic audit where they assess your risk to security and data protection procedures.

This audit will result in you receiving a detailed report outlining your performance against the Cyber Essentials framework.

 

STEP 2 – CYBER ESSENTIALS STANDARD 

You will then receive a list of recommended actions to complete in order to comply with the Cyber Essentials Standard. These actions must be completed within 4 weeks of the audit. Then you must submit your self-assessment document for verification.

If you’ve sufficiently implemented the recommended processes then you will be awarded the Standard certificate.

STEP 1 – CYBER ESSENTIALS PLUS

Firstly, you must achieve the Cyber Essentials Standard certification before you can move on to the Plus.

Once this is done a Cyber Security specialist will visit you and conduct a comprehensive audit where they assess your risk to security and data protection procedures.  A thorough security scan of the network is undertaken and all vulnerabilities are identified.

STEP 2 – CYBER ESSENTIALS PLUS

You will then receive a list of recommended actions to complete in order to comply with the Cyber Essentials Plus.

Once you have implemented these recommended actions, you will be visited by our accreditor for verification. If all is satisfactory, you will be awarded the Plus certificate.
