    What is Cyber Essentials?

    Cyber Essentials is a certification scheme supported by the Government, aimed at establishing a robust security foundation and enabling businesses to operate securely in the online realm. By achieving Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certification, your business demonstrates its dedication to cyber security, which enhances trust and confidence among customers, stakeholders, and partners in your supply chain. As an added benefit, UK companies that obtain Cyber Essentials certification for their entire organisation may be eligible for free cyber insurance (subject to additional conditions).

    Cyber Essentials certification is also often a prerequisite for securing Government and public-sector contracts, making it a valuable catalyst for expanding your sales and fostering business growth. For those seeking even greater security measures, Cyber Essentials Plus offers an extended version of the certification, incorporating additional security controls that unlock further opportunities in the public sector.

    The winning factor when choosing Labyrinth as our IT partner was that we never had to speak to “traditional sales”, throughout the whole technical consultation process, we spoke directly to the technical/operational team and this process assured me that Labyrinth was a forward thinking solutions focused company.
    This is very much reflected in the whole approach from onboarding to ongoing services. We have never been promised anything that has not been delivered, or that we have had concerns over the delivery of.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Cyber Essentials Accreditation is important for several reasons. Firstly, it helps organisations establish a baseline level of cyber security, ensuring that they have implemented essential security controls to mitigate common cyber threats. It also provides a competitive advantage, as many clients and partners now require their vendors to have Cyber Essentials Accreditation. By obtaining this certification, organisations can demonstrate their commitment to protecting customer data, enhancing trust, and securing business relationships.

    To achieve Cyber Essentials Accreditation, organisations need to meet specific requirements related to cyber security controls. These requirements include implementing technical controls such as firewalls, secure configuration, user access controls, malware protection, and patch management. Additionally, organisations need to have appropriate policies and procedures in place to address information security risks, raise awareness among employees, and handle security incidents effectively. Compliance with these requirements is assessed through a self-assessment questionnaire or an external certification body.
