Cyber Essentials

Call us today to start your journey to Cyber Essentials certification

Do you need help with your Cyber Security? The Cyber Essentials accreditation process ensures your organisation is protected against the most common online threats. It is Government backed, industry supported and a fantastic way to improve your Cyber Security. Cyber Essentials is a great tool to show your customers, suppliers and other business contacts that you are taking Cyber Security seriously and have undertaken specific steps to help keep their data secure.

The standard includes completing a self-assessment questionnaire and having an external vulnerability scan performed on your organisation’s network. The questionnaire requires you to submit evidence to support your answers.

Cyber Essentials Plus involves a more in-depth verification of your Cyber Security and includes an onsite assessment by an accredited Certification Body, including an internal vulnerability scan.

Blue Sky Hosting can support and help you through either of these processes, one of our Cyber Security experts will visit you onsite and take you through each of the five key areas covered by Cyber Essentials. They are:

Blue Sky will deliver a report detailing any remediations needed and then support you in making those changes before you submit your organisation for external assessment.

The time required to help you achieve Cyber Essentials certification depends on the size of your organisation, the scope of the assessment and the technologies being used. Get in touch to speak to one of our experts and to quickly improve your Cyber Security.

What we tried to do with CE was develop a common recipe based on evidence of the attacks we were seeing at the time. It was not intended to be a silver-bullet for all forms of cyber attack, but to offer organisations a first step in their journey to protecting themselves in cyber space.
