What is involved in gaining Cyber Essentials accreditation?

To gain your Cyber Essentials accreditation, your IT needs to be evaluated in five different areas.


Secure Configuration

User Access Control

Malware Protection

Patch Management

We support you through the entire process of becoming Cyber Essentials certified, by working with you in two stages:

Stage 1 - Gap Analysis

Firstly, we do an analysis of your organisation's current IT setup against the Cyber Essentials criteria which is split into the five categories above. From this analysis, we then draw up a list of actions which need to be carried out in order for your organisation to be at the required standard for accreditation.

Stage 2 - Implementation

Whether the changes which need to be made are at a policy level or require a more practical implementation, we're here to make it happen! We're with you all the way, right up until you become certified.
