  • CREST-accredited certification; and
  • An external vulnerability scan.
Price: £300.00

Description

This solution is for organisations that have knowledge of all five security controls (secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management and malware protection) and are comfortable carrying out all of the preparation for certification.

How the application process works:

  • We send you details of how to log on to our Cyber Essentials online portal.
  • You define your scope for testing, which will either be the whole organisation’s enterprise IT or a subset.
  • You complete and submit your self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ).
  • We inform you if the SAQ meets the requirements of the Cyber Essentials scheme.
  • You schedule your external vulnerability scan through the portal.
  • Subject to a positive outcome, we issue your Cyber Essentials certificate.

If you need help defining your scope, or are unclear about any of the five Cyber Essentials control areas (secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management and malware protection), we recommend that you purchase our Get A Little Help package instead as that includes two hours of Live Online consultancy. We will then be able to help you through the application process. Alternatively, you can buy our Live Online consultancy alongside your DIY application.

 

Conditions

The package includes a free vulnerability scan for up to 16 IP addresses. If you have more than 16 IP addresses, you will need to purchase additional IP packages in packs of 16. If you fail your external scan, a vulnerability rescan will need to be purchased, plus any additional IP packages that you need.

Benefits of Cyber Essentials

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a world-leading, cost-effective assurance mechanism for companies of all sizes to demonstrate that the most important cyber security controls have been implemented.

It provides five security controls that, according to the UK government, could prevent “around 80% of cyber attacks”.

Correctly implemented cyber security has the additional advantage of driving business efficiency throughout the organisation, saving money and improving productivity.

Protect your organisation from approximately 80% of cyber attacks

Implementing the five controls correctly will help protect your organisation.

Drive business efficiency

Demonstrate security and help secure the supply chain

Work with the UK government and the MOD

Cyber Essentials will permit you to work with the UK government and Cyber Essentials Plus will give you the opportunity to work with the MOD.

Increase your chances of securing business

Boost your reputation and have a greater chance of winning contracts.

Reduce cyber insurance premiums

Cyber insurance agencies often look more favourably on organisations that have achieved Cyber Essentials certification.

Although we have ISO 27001 we have found that Cyber Essentials still adds value to our cyber security controls. This is our second year achieving Cyber Essentials certification and we have seen the growth of Cyber Essentials as a prerequisite for doing business with our customers. The Cyber Comply Portal from IT Governance makes the Cyber Essentials certification process straight forward and hassle free” Chris, Head of Screening and IT, Agenda Screening Services

Achieving Cyber Essentials was seen as a way to demonstrate a level of assurance to our customers, by showing that security controls are in place to protect the business, its IT systems and information, and that these controls have been assessed against an independent, formal framework. The online portal provided an easy way to enter questionnaire responses, schedule the external checks and also request assistance along the way.

Cyber Essentials compliance is essential for any British organisation that wants to improve its protection against cyber attacks while also gaining a competitive edge. This is separate from our ISO 27001:2013 accreditation. By achieving this Cyber Essential Plus certification we demonstrate to our customers that ELEXON has robust practices and policies which protect us from cyber-attacks.
