Cyber Essentials Plus

Verified Certification


The Problem

You’ve self-certified to Cyber Essentials, although a good start, this doesn’t actually prove you have the necessary security in place. The certificate is unverified. 

The Solution

Cyber Essentials Plus certifies that your cyber security has been independently verified by a Certification Body working on behalf of GCHQ/NCSC/IASME. This proves that your business meets all the important security controls. 

How it works


Step 1: Achieve Cyber Essentials

The first step is to achieve Cyber Essentials Basic. We will guide you through the whole process and often businesses can achieve this within 24 hours. From then on, you'll have 90 days to upgrade this certification by achieving Cyber Essentials Plus.


Step 2: Pre-Assessment

We always recommend opting for our Cyber Essentials Plus with Pre-Assessment package so that, before your final assessment, any existing security gaps can be identified and then remediated by your IT provider. This assures a successful Cyber Essentials Plus certification.


Step 3: Cyber Essentials Plus

With all issues now remediated, you're ready to be assessed for Cyber Essentials Plus. This will be done remotely. Upon completion, you'll have immediate access to your certification, report and logos to use on your website and marketing collateral.
