What is Cyber Essentials

The Cyber Essentials scheme helps organisations protect themselves against common online threats and demonstrate commitment to cyber security. This isn’t just for technology companies. It is for any sector and any organisation that wants to better protect its business. CREST is an approved Accreditation Body under the UK Government Cyber Essentials scheme.

This scheme is a great way for organisation’s to implement a risk reduction strategy and build a security awareness culture. More organisation’s are adopting cloud as part of their IT strategy. This is making it even more important for organisations to enhance their protection and Cyber Essentials is a recognised scheme to help companies achieve this.
