Cyber Essentials Onsite Consultancy – 1 day

Cyber Essentials self-assessment questions can be difficult to understand if you do not have a technical IT background or you have a more complex company structure. This service is applicable for the first year of your subscription and it provides additional support with the assessment process, helping you understand the scheme’s requirements, define your scope, understand how to implement the five controls and complete the SAQ.

How the application process works:

  • We contact you to arrange delivery of your consultancy support.
  • We help you define your scope for certification and complete the IASME SAQ.
  • We review your assessment before your first submission to check you meet the certification criteria.
  • You confirm and submit your application.
  • Subject to a positive outcome, you receive your Cyber Essentials certificate.

Is this service right for you?

Our Get A Lot Of Help package will give you a better chance of achieving Cyber Essentials certification at the first attempt. It has been created for organisations with little or no experience of implementing the Cyber Essentials scheme’s five controls, or those that need a lot of assistance completing the SAQ.

It is also suitable for larger organisations with complex organisational structures.

Be listed on the National Cyber Security Centre’s database

Cyber Essentials certificates issued in the previous 12 months are listed on the NCSC website, showing suppliers your commitment to protecting your and your customers’ data.

The NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) has reviewed what influence Cyber Essentials has on cyber security attitudes and behaviours. It found:

  • 93% of certified organisations are confident that they are protected against common, Internet-based cyber attacks;
  • 61% of certified organisations say they are more likely to choose suppliers with Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certification; and
  • Certified organisations are more likely to implement cyber security controls beyond the scheme’s five controls, and are more aware of the risks posed by cyber attacks.

As a company that handles sensitive medical information, TMLEP consider the security of our clients’ information of paramount importance. We have instigated policies and procedures designed to protect that information and having the Cyber Essentials certification is the first step in displaying our commitment to protecting this information to our customers. We opted for the “Get A Lot Of Help” package to ensure that we understood and complied with the scheme in every way possible and the support and assistance we received from our consultant in these areas was invaluable, making the whole certification process very straightforward. We were very pleased to receive this third party certification as it allows our customers to have confidence in our commitment to information security. Steve Hawes, TMLEP
