What is Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials is an effective, Government backed scheme that helps you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a wide range of the most common cyber attacks.

There are two levels of Cyber Essentials certification. Cyber Essentials ensures you have protection against a wide variety of the most common cyber attacks. This involves a questionnaire that looks through your security policies to ensure you are protected.

Cyber Essentials Plus still looks at all the security policies for your business, plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out. If you would like to bid for central government contracts which involve handling sensitive information, you will require a Cyber Essentials certification, however, the Cyber Essentials certificate is beneficial to every business.

At Arc Systems we work with you to go through the whole process and can help with answering questions and assist if you don’t meet requirements.
