Cyber Essentials Plus

The Cyber Essentials Scheme has been developed and launched by the UK Government in 2014 in order to encourage organisations to adhere to good practice in information security and internet safety. Cyber Essentials is regarded as the base level standard of IT security which small to medium companies should meet. The Cyber Essentials framework has been created by CREST, under the authorization of GCHQ, the information security arm of GCHQ.

Cyber Essentials Plus is the next level up from the Cyber Essentials certification. It can be obtained after a more complex process of external and internal independent testing and it represents a guarantee that a company has gone the extra mile to ensure an outstanding level of infrastructure protection.

Cyber Essentials Plus offers a much higher level of assurance by covering 5 distinct areas:

  • Boundary Firewalls and internet gateways;
  • Secure Configuration;
  • User Access Control;
  • Malware Protection;
  • Patch Management.

The Cyber Essentials Plus certification proves that an organisation has implemented the suitable practices to mitigate complex cyber-security threats, making it as hard as possible for cyber-criminals to gain access to its infrastructure.
