Cyber Essentials is the minimum an organisation needs to implement to reduce their risk exposure to cyber attacks.
Organisations who have not implemented this may find that they are not entitled to tender for certain contracts with government bodies etc. Increasingly it is becoming a requirement for, not just companies in the private sector, but also universities, charities, public sector and not for profit organisations to have Cyber Essentials as a minimum security measure.
Some professional bodies such as the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales are encouraging their members to implement Cyber Essentials as a minimum requirement.
It provides a badge of assurance to customers and stakeholders that you take cyber security seriously.
