Cyber Essentials Enhanced

Cyber Essentials is a cyber security standard introduced by the UK government that aims to provide organisations, particularly smaller ones, with pragmatic and cost-effective protection against the most common cyber security threats.

Assessing your security

The basic Cyber Essentials (CE) requirement involves a Self-Assessment Questionnaire, that ECSC combine with an external vulnerability scan, in addition to expert help and support. CE aims to assess the effectiveness of your existing security measures, including firewalls, access controls, malware protection and patch management.

Cyber Essentials PLUS

Cyber Essentials PLUS includes the same external vulnerability scan and self-assessment questionnaire, with the addition of a series of on-site technical assessments to verify your answers and ensure you are protected against various attack scenarios. This extra stage of independent testing gives you even greater peace of mind that your security reaches a certain standard, and is particularly recommended for organisations holding confidential information.

ECSC as a Certification Body

ECSC is a Certifying Body for the Cyber Essentials programme; this means we can conduct your assessment, report the outcome to the scheme administrators (IASME), and ultimately, issue the certificate when you pass.
