The real answer is that it depends on the size of your business and what processes you already have in place. If you have never had any cyber security in place then you need to work with a Managed Cyber Security provider to help instil these processes. 

Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus are both certifications developed by the UK Government to help organisations improve their cyber security and protect them against cyber criminals. Cyber Essentials Plus offers a more rigorous assessment process, including external testing and verification, to provide a higher level of assurance regarding an organisation’s cyber security defences. 

An organisation can undergo its Cyber Essentials Plus audit within three months of its most recent Cyber Essentials Certification.

The audit may be conducted either on-site or remotely and encompasses vulnerability scans of the organisation’s designated infrastructure. Additionally, the auditor will conduct assessments by observing users performing routine tasks on a selected set of devices.

Common questions

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme that helps organisations protect themselves against common online threats.

Any organisation, regardless of size or sector, that wants to boost its protection against cyber threats and demonstrate to stakeholders its commitment to cybersecurity should consider Cyber Essentials certification.

The scheme focuses on five key controls: secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management, and malware protection.

Organisations must implement the five key controls to a satisfactory standard. They then complete a self-assessment questionnaire and have it independently verified by a certification body.

Cyber Essentials involves a self-assessment questionnaire, while Cyber Essentials Plus requires an independent assessment of the organization’s security controls.

The time frame can vary depending on the current state of your cybersecurity, but generally, it can take a few weeks to a few months.

Yes, certification must be renewed annually to ensure ongoing compliance with the scheme’s requirements.

Certification can help protect against cyber threats, demonstrate to stakeholders your commitment to cybersecurity, potentially lower insurance premiums, and meet certain government contract requirements.
