Do you have Cyber Essentials Certification?

Do you feel that your company is fully protected against the growing number of cyber threats which occur on a daily basis? Are you sure that your staff know how to spot the sign of a phishing email and that you have protocols in place to protect your confidential data from hackers?

It’s a fact that small and medium businesses are more susceptible to cyber crime – primarily because hackers know that they don’t have the resources or time to implement a resilient cyber security system. 

That’s why it’s so important for businesses to ensure that they are fully accredited with Cyber Essentials Certification.

What is Cyber Essentials and why is it important?

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme which offers fundamental protection for businesses against a wide range of online threats and shows a corporate commitment to cyber security.

Cyber Essentials Certification offers a guarantee that your online protection meets a certain standard, and focuses upon five key areas;

  • Secure Connections
  • Firewalls
  • Access
  • Malware
  • Patch management and software updates

It can protect all of your computer equipment, from laptops and mobile phones through to servers and networking equipment.
