What the Cyber Essentials Scheme means for UK business

Cyber EssentialsThe Cyber Essentials scheme provides businesses small and large with clarity on good basic cyber security practice. By focussing on basic cyber hygiene, your company will be better protected from the most common cyber threats.

Cyber Essentials is for all organisations, of all sizes, and in all sectors – we encourage all to adopt the requirements as appropriate to their business. This is not limited to companies in the private sector, but is also applicable to universities, charities, and public sector organisations.

The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed as part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme and in close consultation with industry.

Whether your organisation seeks to attain either of these or simply to self-assess and apply the controls will depend on your business drivers and the level of rigour you need or want to demonstrate.

All suppliers bidding for a range of government ICT contracts will have to be certified to the scheme from 1 October 2014
