Obtaining Cyber Essentials

What is Cyber Essentials:

Cyber Essentials aims to help organisations implement basic levels of protection against cyber attack, demonstrating to their customers that they take cyber security seriously. The scheme is available at two levels:

  • Cyber Essentials – an independently verified self assessment. Organisations assess themselves against five basic security controls and a qualified assessor verifies the information provided.
  • Cyber Essentials PLUS – a higher level of assurance. A qualified and independent assessor examines the same five controls, testing that they work in practice by simulating basic hacking and phishing attacks.

How we can help?

Heliocentrix has helped a number of organisations meet the standards required to obtain cyber essentials. We work with you to look at the questionnaire required for the scheme and look at what you have to do to meet the standard.

Depending what controls you have in place already we could help you obtain this within a matter of weeks.

How much does it cost?

Cyber Essentials as the lowest standard costs £300 + VAT to the awarding body and our work would be based on an initial review of what you already have in place.

Cyber Essentials Plus costs are dependant upon your organisation and you would need to get a quote.

Do we have to work with Heliocentrix?

No, you can go straight to the awarding body IASME (https://iasme.co.uk/cyber-essentials/) and complete the questionnaire yourself.
