Why Cyber Essentials?

Even a simple virus or malware could disrupt your productivity — or worse, result in the loss of company or client data, severe reputational damage, hefty fines or even prosecution. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) also obliges organisations to ensure they have measures in place to protect all personal data. Yet, despite this legislation, almost half of UK businesses have experienced a cyber security breach or attack in the past 12 months, rising to 68% for medium-sized firms. This figure has increased since the start of the coronavirus pandemic and indications are this trend will only continue.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government standard which helps you guard your business and valuable data against the most common cyber threats. Plus, it demonstrates that your organisation has made a commitment to tackling cyber security — showing customers that you take it seriously. Since October 2014, it’s also been mandatory to have a Cyber Essentials certification if you have any public sector or local authority contracts. So, if you wish to bid for these types of contracts, you must have Cyber Essentials in place!

Cyber Essentials PLUS has the same requirements as Cyber Essentials but with an added level of reassurance due to the independent assessment of your security controls. This assessment verifies that you have the five technical security controls in place and involves a vulnerability scan, which will identify unpatched or unsupported software, incorrect firewall configuration, open ports, and other threats.

The objective analysis of your existing security controls means Cyber Essentials PLUS has become a much more highly regarded certification which significantly improves your cyber defences. However, due to the nature of the assessment, gaining this certification can be difficult to achieve without the correct preparation.

At Pro Drive, we can help you gain Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials PLUS certification so that you can reduce the threat of attack by up to 80%!

A bit about the standard

There are two levels – basic and PLUS. Cyber Essentials PLUS is the same standard but your systems will be subject to a technical assessment.

You will receive a certificate on successful completion of the assessment for both levels.
