What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme designed to protect organisations against the most common cyber attacks. 

Being part of the UK government Cyber Essentials scheme assures you, your staff and your clients that you proactively protect your systems and data.

A Cyber Essentials certification provides peace of mind in the face of a wide variety of cyber attacks. It is accredited according to a checklist of technical controls, designed to prevent hacking, phishing and password guessing attempts.

You can also apply for Cyber Essentials Plus: a more rigorous investigation of your internet security.

 

Why your business should be Cyber Essentials certified

Cyber attacks are becoming increasingly common, with approximately one million cyber attacks attempted every day! 

Cyber Essentials certification is designed to protect your business against the most prevalent hacking and phishing scams. Bolstering your internet security against relatively simple cyber attacks makes your business less of a target for more sophisticated cyber criminals.

Other benefits of Cyber Essentials certification include:

– Reassurance for your clients, that their data is secure and you take internet security seriously. 

– Assured security measures to attract new business prospects.

– Clear awareness of your organisation’s security level and any potential vulnerabilities.

‘A good starting point’ for compliance with GDPR, according to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

– Listing on the Cyber Essentials directory of certified providers.

Also, Cyber Essentials is a requirement if your business is interested in bidding for government contracts. A registered assessment could lead to the chance to work with the public sector.

Cyber Essentials Certification Process

Our team of expert IT engineers are Accredited Cyber Essentials practitioners. We are one of the select certifying bodies in the UK, registered to undertake official Cyber Essentials assessments.

To get certified, we will guide you through a series of security controls and recommendations:

Step 1:  Preliminary Assessment

To gain a clearer view of your current situation, we’ll ask you to complete a questionnaire about your IT systems and security measures

Step 2: On-Site Assessment

We’ll visit your office/business location to inspect your devices, software and network connection. As an accredited certification body, it’s our job to ensure that your systems meet the specification claimed in your survey response.

Step 3: Consultancy for Compliance

Once we have audited your internet security, we will highlight any areas for improvement. Our expert IT Consultants will recommend best practice updates required to meet the Cyber Essentials standard.

We will arrange for our IT support engineers to carry out any required updates to your hardware and/or software.

Step 4: Official Assessment & Certification

Once we are confident of your level of internet security, our ACE practitioners will conduct an official assessment. This involves cataloguing your IT systems in line with a detailed set of requirements set out by the National Cyber Security Centre.

After we log your results with Cyber Essentials, you will receive a certificate to demonstrate your commitment to cybersecurity.

Step 5: Optional Upgrade to Cyber Essentials Plus

To be validated with a Cyber Essentials Plus certificate, your systems will need to be verified by independent experts. At Linten, our IT consultants and engineers can help you prepare for the government audit. 

 

Cybersecurity Assessment

Cybersecurity measures incorporate all aspects of your business’s IT systems. As part of our audit and recommendations, we will help you to: 

– Protect your internet connection and internal network 

– Secure individual devices and software

– Manage access to your secure files and data

– Prevent viruses, malware and other malicious software attacks

– Update your devices and software with the latest security fixes
