What's included in the Cyber Essentials Get a Little Help package?

Cyber Essentials certification and precheck

Cyber Essentials Remote Support – up to 2 hours

This remote support service provides up to two hours with a Cyber Essentials consultant and is offered via email, phone or Microsoft Teams. It is ideal for organisations not certain about the requirements of the scheme, which option to choose, or how to define the scope of the certification.

*Certification guarantee

How the application process works:

  • We send you access details for the IASME Cyber Essentials portal via email.
  • We contact you to book your Cyber Essentials remote support.
  • You log onto the IASME portal where you will define your scope for testing and complete and the IASME SAQ (self-assessment questionnaire).
  • We review your assessment, prior to your first submission and inform you if you meet the criteria to achieve the certification.
  • You confirm and submit your application on the IASME portal.
  • Subject to a positive outcome, you receive your Cyber Essentials certificate.

Upgrade to Get A Lot Of Help

If you need a lot more help than the 2 hours of Cyber Essentials Remote Support to define your scope, or to further understand how to implement 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 Lot Of Help package instead as that includes a full day of consultancy support. We will then be able to help you through all areas of the application process in greater detail.

AlphaPlus Consultancy is an education consultancy that specialises in the design, development and deployment of qualifications and their underpinning assessment, and in the evaluation of their performance and impact. A large proportion of our work involves secure and confidential data, with this in mind, data security is of critical importance to AlphaPlus Consultancy. Successfully completing the Cyber Essentials certification process assures our clients that we can be trusted to carefully manage their data. We opted for the Cyber Essentials ‘Get a little help’ package, to enable us to quickly clarify and rectify any concerns raised. The process was straightforward and culminated in us having enough support time left over to have our IT policy reviewed.
