You can’t afford to take chances with the security of your network infrastructure. It should be regularly monitored and tested to ensure that it’s secure and Cyber Security risks are minimised.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a Cyber Security certification scheme that has been developed to help organisations protect themselves from common cyber threats. 

It provides a robust framework for improving Cyber Security practices in the UK and has been developed to be accessible for businesses of all sizes. It provides a thorough and structured approach to Cyber Security that significantly mitigates risk.

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.

How to Achieve Cyber Essentials?

In order to achieve Cyber Essentials certification, organisations need to address each of the 5 key components, ensuring appropriate Cyber Security practices are implemented and documented.
