Implement and maintain a basic level of cyber hygiene

Cyber Essentials

  • Implement and maintain a basic level of cyber hygiene as defined and recommended by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC)
  • Ensure your organisation is compliant with the Cyber Essentials standard
  • Certify your organisation to Cyber Essentials

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a cyber security standard, which organisations can be assessed and certified against. It identifies the security controls that an organisation must have in place within their IT systems in order to have confidence that they are addressing cyber security effectively and mitigating the risk from Internet-based threats.

The scheme focuses on the following five essential mitigation strategies within the context of the 10 Steps to Cyber Security guide.

  • Boundary Firewalls and Internet Gateways
  • Secure Configuration
  • Access Control
  • Malware Protection
  • Patch Management

It provides organisations with clear guidance on implementation as well as offering independent certification following the provision of a self-assessment questionnaire to a certifying body.

Whilst providing a basic but essential level of protection, the Cyber Essentials scheme enables organisations that believe they are practicing robust cyber security to benefit by making this a unique selling point thereby enabling business. Upon certification, they can then demonstrate to their customers that their data is adequately protected and that they take cyber security seriously.
