Organisations with a culture of cyber security are better placed to prevent and deal with intrusions and security breaches. In view of this, the UK Government has recently launched the Cyber Essentials Scheme
(CES) to raise awareness of the issues and help organisations defend themselves against the threats. Furthermore, organisations that do not comply with the CES will find it difficult – if not impossible – to work with the UK Government in the future.
Built on expert knowledge gained from numerous cyber security implementation projects, IT Governance Publishing’s new Cyber Essentials Toolkit
provides all the information you need to ensure that you comply with the CES. It also provides the materials necessary to move beyond compliance towards more robust cyber security.
Since organisations must decide for themselves exactly how the CES controls are implemented, the Cyber Essentials Toolkit does not dictate specific actions. Instead, it includes all the work procedures and processes you need to ensure that your implementation of the controls complies with the requirements of the CES, boosting your cyber security as intended.
Alan Calder, Founder and Executive Chairman of IT Governance, the company that owns IT Governance Publishing (ITGP), explains: “The new Cyber Essentials Scheme is not a box-ticking exercise, but an important step by the UK authorities to toughen up the cyber security of every organisation in the UK.
