There will be two levels of compliance: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.
It was also announced that from 1 October 2014, the UK Government will require all suppliers bidding for certain contracts assessed as higher risk or which require the handling of sensitive and personal information to be Cyber Essentials certified.

Speakers from IT Governance, BCS, ISACA and SGS will also take part in the event, which is aimed at organisations of all types and sizes.
