Description

With this service you can conduct the entire certification process using our secure portal – a user-friendly, no-fuss solution to applying for Cyber Essentials Plus certification. This unique online service enables companies to apply for Cyber Essentials Plus certification following a convenient ‘do it yourself’ approach.

This service is for organisations that have knowledge of all five security controls (secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management and malware protection), and are comfortable carrying out all the preparations for certification.


How the service works

  • We send you details of how to log on to our Cyber Essentials online portal.
  • You define your scope for testing using guidance in the portal.
  •  You complete and submit your SAQ (self-assessment questionnaire).
  • We inform you if the SAQ meets the requirements of the Cyber Essentials scheme.
  • You schedule your on-site assessment, which will include the internal vulnerability scan.
  • You schedule your external vulnerability scan through the portal.
  • We will conduct the on-site assessment and perform the necessary internal scan on a sample of your Internet-facing devices.
  • We will provide you with the results of the internal scan and on-site assessment. If there are nonconformities, we will provide detailed feedback to help you understand how to close these gaps and achieve certification.
  • Subject to a positive outcome, we issue your Cyber Essentials Plus certificate.

Is this service right for you?

  • You are confident in defining the scope of your assessment encompassing the entire organisation; 
  • You own and operate your entire scope of IT infrastructure; 
  • You are familiar with the five key controls covered in the Cyber Essentials questionnaire and how to meet them; or
  • You have previously certified and are looking to renew and your scope has not changed.

If you need help defining your scope, or are unclear about any of the five Cyber Essentials control areas, we recommend that you purchase our Cyber Essentials - Get A Little Help package, as this includes two hours of Live Online consultancy. We will then be able to help you through the application process. Alternatively, you can buy our Cyber Essentials Live Online Consultancy alongside Cyber Essentials Plus - Do It Yourself.


Benefits

Benefits of the Cyber Essentials scheme:

  • Demonstrate security and help secure the supply chain: The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), 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.
  • Increase your chances of securing 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. 
  • Reduce cyber insurance premiums: Cyber insurance agencies look more favourably on organisations that have achieved Cyber Essentials certification.

Conditions

  • This package includes on-site testing at one location, of one type of user account, on up to ten device builds. Additional workstations, mobile devices and build types may need to be tested to meet the sampling requirements of the scheme. If you require additional devices to be tested, you will need to purchase Cyber Essentials Plus Additional Device Testing. For further information see our FAQ section.
  • 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 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.
  • If your business is located outside mainland UK (England, Scotland and Wales), additional expenses will be charged to accommodate our consultant’s travel for the on-site assessment.

Pre-test requirements

  • All user device builds to be tested, including mobile and BYOD (bring your own device), must be available 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 (https://ces.itgovernance.co.uk).
  • 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 details of the 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.

ICONICS required Cyber Essentials Plus as it was a requirement for the work we do with UK Government departments. It provides validation that the security measures that we have put in place to look after our customer’s data is effective and robust. The process of certification through IT Governance was straight-forward with really helpful contacts right from initial consultation with Zak Rush through to the final certification. The process was completed quickly and very cost effectively and we had great help from Alex Drabek, our on-site auditor. The CyberComply website makes filling in and tracking the process simple.
