What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed scheme which details the cyber security controls that could prevent up to 80% of common cyber attacks from the internet.
Cyber Essentials addresses the most common internet-based threats including phishing, password guessing and hacking and details a specific set of technical controls for how businesses IT systems should be configured, and governed through their HR policy, to reduce these threats. It covers five key areas including:
devices and software
Controlling access to data and services
Protecting from viruses and malware
Keeping devices and software up to date
