This service will help you achieve CREST-accredited Cyber Essentials certification for just £225. It is conducted online and includes a review of your self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ), the required vulnerability scans and the certification service.

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 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 control areas within the SAQ (secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management and malware protection), we recommend that you purchase our Live Online Consultancy. We will then be able to help you through the application process.



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

Whether or not you achieve certification to the scheme, these controls provide the basic level of protection that you need to implement in your organisation to protect it from the majority of cyber attacks.

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

Implementing the five controls correctly will help protect your organisation.

Achieving Cyber Essentials certification will demonstrate your commitment to protecting your own data and that of your customers and suppliers.
