Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed scheme that has been developed to protect organisations against a wide range of common cyber attacks. Certification demonstrates to your clients that you are taking steps to reduce the risk of a cyber incident. It can aid in winning new business (often requested as part of due diligence / supply chain security assurance) and is required for some Government contracts.
