What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a UK Government sponsored initiative, it aims to better secure UK businesses against the developing Cyber threat. It is an essential accreditation for any company that does business with the UK Government but also provides a series of controls and measures which, if put in place, enhance the basic Cyber hygiene of any organisation.
The majority of cyber-attacks exploit basic weaknesses in IT systems and software. With the addition of just a few common-sense controls, a lot of these attacks can be prevented. Cyber Essentials shows you how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks.
