Cyber essentials

Cyber Essentials scheme is one of the actions under the UK Government policy “Keeping the UK safe in cyber space“.

The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed by Government and industry to fulfil two functions.

  • It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats, within the context of the Government’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security.
  • And through the Assurance Framework it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions.
