What Is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a UK Government-backed scheme designed to help businesses from startups to large enterprises demonstrate a commitment to protecting themselves against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks including inappropriate access to personal information and other Cyber risks which may be the responsibility of the Board of Directors through regulations such as GDPR.
Tiberium has a long and successful history of supporting businesses of all sizes. Tiberium is certification body authorised to provide the assessment services for both Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation.
The UK Government recognises the challenge from the current cyber threat and has the ambition to tackle it head on.
Cyber Essentials is very much part of the National Cyber Security Strategy and through gaining the certification, Tiberium is making an important and valuable contribution towards the Government’s aim of making the UK the safest place to do business online.
Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus
Cyber Essentials certification has two levels: An organisation can either be certified to ‘Cyber Essentials’ or ‘Cyber Essentials PLUS’.
Cyber Essentials is self-assessed, with the assistance of Tiberium if required. It is designed to ensure protection against a wide variety of the most common cyber attacks. Most cyber attacks are simple in nature and opportunistic. Cyber Essentials gives your business peace of mind against these common threats.
Cyber Essentials’ certification is not a pre-requisite for ‘Cyber Essential PLUS’, although the requirements of the cyber Essentials’ certification are all included in Cyber Essentials PLUS.
Businesses choosing to gain Cyber Essentials PLUS require a technical assessment of the environment including workstation and mobile device build, internal and external host vulnerability scanning which be provided as part of the Tiberium service.
Tiberium will assist you in selecting, obtaining and maintaining the appropriate level of certification for your business now and as you grow.
