Secure your business

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, government-backed scheme. It is designed to help protect your organisation against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.

Holding a Cyber Essentials certificate is mandatory for organisations in the UK Government supply chain. If your business is not legally required to hold this certificate, it is still beneficial for business as it demonstrates a commitment to and awareness of Cyber Security risks.

Cyber Essentials Plus provides a more rigorous auditing process. It further protects against phishing and hacking. CE+ requires system tests to be carried out by an external body.

The certification process requires both an internal and external vulnerability scan, plus an on-site assessment to verify your cybersecurity position.

Your business must demonstrate the required level of protection in the 5 key security controls:

  • Secure your devices and software.
  • Secure your Internet connection.
  • Control access to your data and services.
  • Keep your devices and software up to date.
  • Protect from viruses and other malware.

Setting up for success

We need to picture your current position to cover the five protection points required to pass the certification.

Our engineers audit your network and systems during our initial assessment. Once we have your audit results, we identify any vulnerabilities and build a clear plan to address them.

“The initial audit was fantastic. It really gave us an understanding of where we were and took away the fear of the lack of knowledge. The broken-down recommendations really helped us understand the priority areas that needed attention, also helped me explain to my colleagues when it came to costs. Netitude have really helped us move forward as a business, initially we thought we just needed someone to ‘fix’ things, but we have moved on further than I ever imagined.”
