Cyber Essentials Plus Audit

This service will help you achieve Cyber Essentials Plus certification. Before applying for Cyber Essentials Plus certification, you must provide confirmation you hold a valid Cyber Essentials certification achieved through an IASME Consortium Ltd licensed certification body within three months of applying.

This product is for organisations that have a high degree of knowledge of all five security controls and are comfortable carrying out all the preparations for certification.

What’s included?

  • An on-site/remote internal assessment and internal vulnerability scans.
  • External vulnerability scan.
  • Your Cyber Essentials Plus certificate and report.

How the application process works:

  • Once we have confirmation you have achieved Cyber Essentials certification, you schedule your on-site/remote assessment, which will include the internal vulnerability scan(s).
  • We conduct the internal assessment and perform the internal scan on a sample of your Internet-facing devices, and then provide the results. If there are nonconformities, we will also provide feedback to help you understand how to achieve certification.
  • We schedule your external vulnerability scan.
  • Subject to a positive outcome, you receive your Cyber Essentials Plus certificate and report.

This service is right for you if:

  • You have already achieved Cyber Essentials certification through an IASME certification body within three months of applying.
  • Your organisation has a high degree of knowledge of all five security controls and is comfortable carrying out all the preparations for testing and certification.

If you need any help, we recommend our Remote Consultancy Support, which is delivered via email, telephone or Microsoft Teams by one of our cyber security experts and is available to purchase by the hour.


Benefits of Cyber Essentials certification

Secure the supply chain

The ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office), whose job it is to uphold the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in the UK, recommends Cyber Essentials as “a good starting point” for the cyber security of the IT you rely on to hold and process personal data.

Secure more business

If you would like to bid for central government contracts that involve handling sensitive and personal information or the provision of certain technical products and services, you will require Cyber Essentials certification.

Work with the UK government and MOD

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



Cyber Essentials Plus involves a technical audit of the systems that are in scope for Cyber Essentials. This includes a representative set of workstations, mobile devices and build types used by the organisation’s end users to complete their day-to-day duties. The number of builds is defined by the number of configurations of operating systems and software suites installed. If more than one browser or Office suite is used, each variant will need to be tested. If they are installed on the same build, this is acceptable.

  • This package includes on-site testing at one location, of one type of user account, on up to ten sample devices. Additional workstations, mobile devices and build types may need to be tested to meet the sampling requirements of the scheme. If you require more than ten end-user workstations to be tested, you will need to purchase Cyber Essentials Plus Certification – Additional Device Testing. This testing can be conducted remotely in some instances.
  • If you fail any of the Cyber Essentials Plus testing performed as part of the overall engagement, we will provide you with details of further tests required. Any retest should be completed within one month of the original assessment. These tests will be billed separately.
  • The package includes a 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 rescan will need to be purchased, plus any additional IP packages that you need to cover only the failing IP addresses if completed with 14 days of the first passing element.
  • If your business is located outside mainland UK, additional expenses will be charged to accommodate our consultant’s travel time and costs for the on-site assessment. These will be billed separately.
  • If your Cyber Essentials Plus application is unsuccessful, your Cyber Essentials certification may be revoked.

Pre-test requirements

  • All user devices are subject to testing and will be agreed upon before the testing date, including mobile and BYOD (bring your own device), and must be available for testing.
  • All devices within the scope of testing must be user devices and cannot be built specifically for testing.
  • A local user account with username and password must be available for each user group in scope.
  • Devices must have Internet access, allow emails from our test domain and be accessible by our test web server (
  • You must provide details of a user email account per user group being assessed.
  • Workstation builds must be configured to allow an authenticated vulnerability scan that will determine patch and version numbers of installed software, and you must provide details of the user account to be used.
  • Remote registry must be enabled on the workstation builds, and no global policies that block the authenticated vulnerability scan are permitted.

Some teething issues with respect to scope and recieving notifications but George (our auditor) was excellent and attended to all our needs to ensure the whole process went smoothly. He explained the process and when we needed to contact him he made every effort to detail what needed to be done. All in all a great credit to IT Governance!
