What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a Government backed certification introduced following concerns that organisations were not putting the basic technical controls in place to protect themselves against the most common internet-based attacks.
The Cyber Essentials scheme was developed to show organisations how
to protect themselves against low-level “commodity threat”. It lists five technical controls (access control; boundary firewalls and Internet gateways; malware protection; patch management and secure configuration) that organisations should have in place.
The vast majority of cyber attacks use relatively simple methods which exploit basic vulnerabilities in software and computer systems. There are tools and techniques openly available on the Internet which enable even low-skill actors to exploit these vulnerabilities. Properly implementing the Cyber Essentials scheme will protect against the vast majority of common internet threats.
