The certification requires assessment of five key security controls:
This effectively creates a ‘buffer zone’ between your IT network and other external networks.
The default settings on software can provide cyber attackers with opportunities to gain unauthorised access to your data, often with ease.
Staff accounts should have just enough access to software, settings, online services and device connectivity functions for them to perform their role.
The use of Anti-Malware measures such as Windows Defender, Allowed List and Sandboxing can prevent Malware. You’ll need to implement at least one approach to achieve the certification.
Also known as ‘Patching’. Developers release regular updates which fix any security vulnerabilities that have been discovered. Applying these updates promptly is one of the most important things you can do to improve security.
The Benefits of Cyber Essentials Certification
The #1 risk for business is cyber. In the past year, security strategies and practices have been tested like no other. Rapidly accelerated digital transformations, opportunistic phishing campaigns, discontinuity of information security operations and financial constraints are creating the perfect storm in a COVID-19-disrupted world.
Cyber criminals never take a break and as the threat landscape continues to evolve, cyber security grows both more mission critical and complex to manage. Business Leaders who understand these challenges and can pivot their security approach, become Cyber Essentials Certified and can help their organisation to become stronger and more resilient.
Through gaining Cyber Essentials certification, organisations with an annual turnover of less than £20M can opt-in to receive free cyber security insurance by filling in six questions included as part of the Cyber Essentials application process. Not only will your organisation be Cyber Essentials certified, but have access to cyber insurance in the unfortunate event your organisation needs it.
