Cyber Essentials Plus
The process can identify areas of security weakness that you may not have been aware of.
What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials scheme is a government-backed cyber security certification that sets out a baseline of cyber security suitable for all organisations. The scheme’s five security controls can prevent “around 80% of cyber attacks”. The certification is a valuable indicator that the organisation has taken the necessary measures to bolster cyber security and reduce the risk of a cyber attack. Here at Equilibrium we are one of the few certification bodies within the Midlands region.
Why Cyber Essentials Plus?
Cyber Essentials Plus is the next stage on from the basic Cyber Essentials Self Assessment Certification. It tests an organisations security against the information obtained in the self-assessment Cyber Essentials questionnaire. As part of the certification we will run a series of penetration tests and carefully managed attacks to test your controls to protect against hackers.
Why Cyber Essentials Plus?
What is the process to get the Certification?
As part of the Cyber Essentials Plus certification process, one of our security consultants will remotely test the controls put in place, validating the answers submitted in the self-assessment questionnaire, and to perform an in-depth assessment of the security of the organisation. If there are areas that we identify that are in breach of the assessment we will provide remediation actions and timescales that you can apply prior to us issuing the certification. Equilibrium Security will then issue the certification for the Cyber Essentials Plus, this will be validated for a year.
Upon successful completion of either stage of the Cyber Essentials scheme, you will receive a certificate and be entitled to display the appropriate Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus badge on your website.
