Benchmark your security with Cyber Essentials

The National Cyber Security Centre for the UK works with the government to provide a standard by which small businesses can opt-in.    Upon providing the evidence to meet the criteria set within the standard a certificate is published, valid for 1 year.

The benefit of this certifcation is recognition that your business mitigates the general risks associated with working on the internet.
