Meeting your business objectives

It is seen that cyber-attacks can cause a lot of disruption and downtime leading to a loss of substantial amounts of money. There seems to be no correlation in the type of business the attacks are focused on, with hackers exploiting any weakness in IT infrastructure and software.

01
Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus are Government-enforced industry schemes to help protect organisations against security threats while showing a proactive commitment to Cyber Security.
02
Cyber Essentials addresses the basic security needs and shows how a company can protect against common attacks.

Requirements for Cyber Essentials include the following:

01
Configuration and Firewall protection is used on all devices including those connected to public and untrusted Wi-Fi networks.
02
Only software, accounts and apps that are necessary to the business are used.
03
Access is managed efficiently with access and privilege rights given to only those who need it.
04
All apps, devices and software are always kept up to date.
05
The scheme addresses and defends against attacks such as hacking, phishing and password guessing.
06
All devices which are connected to the internet are ensured that there is protection on confidentially, integrity and availability of data stored on these devices.
07
This certification guarantees that a business has put measures in place to protect them from cyber-attacks.
08
In order to gain a Cyber Essentials certification, an accreditation body will need to be selected. We will help the customer to identify the correct body and verify that all standards are being met. A questionnaire will need to be completed and verified to be awarded with the certificate.
09
Cyber Essentials Plus has all the same requirements as Cyber Essentials as well as meeting the requirements of the technical security controls, which are firewalls, secure configuration, user access control, malware protection and patch management. Along with this, an independent assessment will need to take place.
