The Government's flagship programme is currently being rolled out to companies throughout the UK, endorsed by GCHQ and the National Cyber Security Centre.

It is designed to improve your defence against cyber criminals, protecting your business  from  80% of known cyber attacks. 

The scheme is intended to become mandatory by 2020 and is already a requirement for companies bidding for Government and council contracts.

If you have a good knowledge of your network, our DIY service provides you with a quick way to get certified. You can buy this service online today.

Need a bit more help? Enquire about our Guided Cyber Essentials service.

The Cyber Essentials DIY application requires you to fill out a 50 question check-list, detailing the controls that your business has in the areas of;

  • Secure configuration

  • Boundary firewalls and internet gateways

  • Access control and administrative privilege management

  • Patch management

  • Malware protection

With our DIY service, we will provide you with a helpful guide to take you through completing the questionnaire yourself. Once completed, we'll check it for you before submitting it. *

* Maximum two submission attempts before further charges incurred.
