Frequently asked questions

Cyber Essentials is a UK government scheme which outlines the fundamental steps businesses need to take to secure their systems. These include firewalls, secure configuration, user access control, malware protection and patch management. It’s worth remembering that the technology used for security is only as effective as the people using it. So, employee awareness training should be seen as the sixth control in ensuring cyber security.

Cyber Essentials sets out five technical cyber security controls that all organisations can implement to achieve a solid foundation of cyber security. ISO 27001 goes considerably further by providing 114 security controls which encompass people, processes and technology.

An online attack can result in your business being exposed to viruses, data breaches, malware, loss of connectivity and – in many cases – a financial impact. Your reputation is also at risk if customer data is compromised. So, if your business relies on the internet, email or cloud services and handles sensitive or personal data, it’s crucial you do all you can to protect your business against cybercrime.
