Cyber Essentials

Select Technology can help you pass the Cyber Essentials certification.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against 80% of common cyber-attacks. It includes a series of checks and technical controls to ensure you are efficiently protected against cyber threats, including hacking, phishing or password attacks. To pass the certification, you will need evidence in support of your answers.

Why should you get certified?

Boost your IT security

The first reason to get Cyber Essentials certified is to supercharge your IT security systems and ensure you are protected against viruses, malwares, ransomware, spam, phasing, vishing and social engineering. This will allow you to raise the question of cyber security with your whole organisation and ensure that your whole team knows how to protect themselves against cyber threats.

Regulatory Compliance

The Cyber Essentials certification will help you ensure that you are compliant with all relevant data protection regulations,including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It will help you identify areas of vulnerability in your data protection plan and put the right processes in place to ensure data is accurately protected.

Tender for bigger projects

Once you achieve your Cyber Essentials certification, you will be able to tender for high-value projects, which require this specific certification. It open new business opportunities for you.
