Cyber Essentials

Achieve government endorsed standards of cyber security

Cyber Essentials

review your security posture alongside our experts

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed cyber security certification scheme that sets out a good baseline of cyber security, suitable for all organisations in all sectors. The scheme addresses five key controls that, when implemented correctly, can prevent around 80% of cyber-attacks.

Net Consulting can help you implement these controls. Once successfully implemented, your organisation can apply for a badge that recognises the achievement of Government-endorsed standards of cyber security.

The five key controls of Cyber Essentials:

  • Secure Configuration
  • Boundary firewalls and Internet gateways
  • Access controls and administrative privilege management
  • Patch management
  • Malware protection

Why do you need it?

Since 1 October 2014, the UK Government has required all suppliers bidding for certain sensitive and personal information handling contracts to be certified against the Cyber Essentials scheme.

Beyond this, Cyber Essentials is a way to validate your company’s cyber resiliency and reassure customers that the correct security controls are in place across your organisation. NCL can guide you through every step of the process towards becoming certified.
