The Get a Lot of Help package

Our Get a Lot of Help package has been created for organisation with little or no experience of the controls of the scheme, or those who are unaware of the scope of their projects and require a lot of assistance answering the SAQ and who would benefit from the additional assistance provided by a day of on-site consultancy. The consultancy time may also be used remotely if preferred. It is also suitable for large organisations with complex structures although these types of organisations who don’t necessarily fit in to the scheme might want to start with a Cyber Essentials Plus Health Check which includes an onsite consultancy day/gap analysis of the current infrastructure, which concludes with a formal report.

How is our Cyber Essentials certification service different from others?

  • An extra level of assurance following the CREST Cyber Essentials testing specification including a vulnerability scan of your public facing infrastructure at no extra cost.
  • Our Cyber Essentials portal is our unique interface which allows our customers to complete their Cyber Essentials applications seamlessly from start to finish by breaking down each section of the application.
  • You get the assurance that your certification is conducted by a CREST-accredited certification body and CREST-accredited practitioner which provides a heightened level of assurance compared to completing the SAQ alone.

What's included in the Cyber Essentials Get a Lot of Help Bundle?

Cyber Essentials - Do It Yourself

This knowledge is necessary to complete the SAQ (self-assessment questionnaire).

  • Built on expert knowledge from numerous cyber security implementation projects
  • Ensure that the controls you are implementing are aligned to the requirements of the Cyber Essentials Scheme

Phishing Staff Awareness

Human error is one of the leading causes of data breaches. Failing to train your staff on the dos and don’ts of cyber security could be disastrous.

Train your staff and take the extra step to boost your security with a phishing staff awareness course.

Empower and educate your staff on the right steps to take to keep your organisation and data secure. Achieving Cyber Essentials certification and implementing phishing staff awareness training will strengthen your defences, further secure your organisation and help to mitigate your risk of attack.

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
