Completing the Cyber Essentials self-assessment questionnaire
Completing the Cyber Essentials SAQ (self-assessment questionnaire) is an important part of achieving either Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
The SAQ includes approximately 50 questions related to each of the 5 security controls required for Cyber Essentials certification: secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management and malware protection.
A completed SAQ serves as a statement of compliance, signed off by a senior executive of your organisation, demonstrating that you have met the scheme’s requirements.
