How Much Does Cyber Essentials Cost?

Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus Scheme

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed Cyber Security accreditation scheme that has been developed to ensure an organisation’s systems and data are secured against a range of online threats. It is the recognised standard when it comes to Cyber Security in the UK, embedding best practices across both the private and public sectors.

Cyber Essentials is a highly desirable scheme for organisations to reduce the risk of costly, sometimes catastrophic, cyber-attacks and other threats. It also provides reassurance for customers, suppliers and partners that your organisation is taking security seriously.

Equilibrium Security are one of the few Cyber Essentials Certification bodies within the Midlands. We have been working alongside IASME conducting Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus assessments since 2016.

Learn Plus Us recently worked with Jacob and the team at Equilibrium Security to pass our Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation. We found them to be extremely supportive and knowledgeable throughout the process. They were always available to answer any questions we had and provided us with the guidance and resources we needed to ensure a successful outcome. We found them to be a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to pass their Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation.
