Under this scheme, which is backed by Government and supported by industry, organisations can apply for certification, which recognises the achievement of government-endorsed standards of cyber hygiene.
There are two levels of certification:
||Cyber Essentials – organisations complete a self-assessment questionnaire and the responses are reviewed by an external certifying body
||Cyber Essentials Plus – tests of the organisation’s systems are carried out by an external certifying body.
If you'd like to get a Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certificate for your organisation, please visit the official Cyber Essentials site.
