Cyber Essentials Certification

Protect your organisation against online threats by achieving Cyber Essentials.

Cyber Essentials addresses five fundamental controls to help prevent cyber attacks:

Firewall configuration

Secure configuration

User access control

Patch management

Malware protection

Cyber Essentials certification is a UK government-backed scheme developed by the
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). It helps organisations protect themselves against cyber threats and demonstrates their commitment to Cyber Security. In 2020, IASME became the NCSC’s Cyber Essentials partner responsible for raising awareness of Cyber Essentials for organisations in the UK.

As an IASME trusted and licensed partner, our team guides organisations of all sizes through the process of achieving the Cyber Essentials certification – from start to finish.

By 2025, 60% of organisations will use cybersecurity risk as a significant determinant in conducting third-party transactions and business engagements. (Gartner)
