Risk Reduction Certification for UK Business
Cyber attacks and data breaches are an ever-growing threat to UK organisations and, as a result, businesses are feeling the pressure from clients, stakeholders and the government to show they’re secure and reliable. You know cyber security needs to be a priority, but just where do you start?
Cyber Essentials is the government-backed cyber security certification designed to protect your business or organisation from common cyber threats. Achieving this certification demonstrates your alignment with the five main Technical Security Controls, proving that your business is safe and secure.

"I found the whole process very easy to follow and the feedback from the assessment team very helpful and instructive."
Using their systems to conduct the assessment was incredibly easy even for a new client and any questions I did have were answered in a matter of minutes. From the initial contact with the sales team through to dealing with the assessor, the process was effortless and streamlined. I look forward to dealing with CTS for our renewal next year
