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:

Understanding your Cyber Essentials needs

Cyber Essentials is two things; it is (a) a technical specification, and (b) a certification.

(a) Technical Specification

Implementing and regularly reviewing the Cyber Essentials technical controls will protect your business against common cyber threats.

- Proactive risk management

- HM Governments minimum benchmark

- Prevent 80% of common attacks

(b) Certification

Optional unless demanded - obtaining the certificate will show that you take cyber security seriously and enable you to bid for Government contracts.

- Needed for local and central Government contracts

- Needed for HS2 rail project subcontractors

- Needed for Lexcel and/or CQS accredited legal practices

Cyber Essentials was created to assist in bringing all businesses up to a minimum benchmark of cyber security to better secure the British economy. As such, demand for certification is ever-increasing. Following the Cyber AMI assessment, you will be provided with the opportunity to purchase your certification* should you need it.
