Cyber Essentials

Why Cyber Essentials?

Almost half of UK businesses experienced a cybersecurity breach or attack in the past 12 months, rising to 68% of medium-sized firms. This figure has increased since the start of the coronavirus pandemic and indications are this trend will continue.

This is against the backdrop that the data privacy (GDPR) legislation obliges organisations to ensure they have measures in place to protect all personal data.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government standard which helps you guard against the most common cyber threats. It also demonstrates your organisation has made a commitment to tackling cybersecurity.

By adopting Cyber Essentials, you can reduce the threat of attack by up to 80%.
