At Aztech, the Cyber Essentials certification is about resilience, not just compliance.

Cyber Essentials is a pivotal cybersecurity initiative designed to bolster the digital resilience of organisations, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), against a backdrop of escalating cyber threats. Established by the UK government, this scheme outlines a set of fundamental security measures that serve as a robust foundation for safeguarding sensitive data and systems from malicious actors. At its core, Cyber Essentials emphasises five key areas of cybersecurity: boundary firewalls and internet gateways, secure configuration, access control, malware protection, and patch management. By adhering to these essential principles, organisations can significantly reduce their vulnerability to common cyber-attacks such as phishing, ransomware, and unauthorised access. One of the distinguishing features of Cyber Essentials is its accessibility and applicability across various industries and sectors. Whether it's a small local business or a multinational corporation, the principles outlined in Cyber Essentials can be implemented to fortify cybersecurity posture effectively.

The Cyber Essentials certification is a UK government-backed scheme that helps organisations protect themselves against common cyber threats. It sets out a baseline of cybersecurity measures that organisations need to have in place to mitigate the risk from internet-based threats. By achieving the Cyber Essentials certification, organisations demonstrate their commitment to cybersecurity best practices and enhance their resilience against cyber attacks.

To achieve Cyber Essentials certification, you will need to complete a self-assessment questionnaire covering five key cybersecurity controls. An accredited certification body reviews the evidence and conducts an external vulnerability scan. Upon meeting requirements, you'll receive certification valid for one year.
While Cyber Essentials focuses on basic cybersecurity controls, involving a self-assessment questionnaire and an external vulnerability scan, Cyber Essentials Plus adds an internal scan and an on-site assessment, offering a higher level of assurance. Cyber Essentials Plus is recommended for organisations with more complex IT environments or for those needing a higher level of security assurance.
