What is Cyber Essentials ?
Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that helps protect organisations, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.
Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked. The government’s advice, as part of Cyber Essentials is designed to prevent these attacks.
Further information on the scheme can be found on the National Cyber Security Centre website.
