Cyber Essentials provides protection against a wide variety of cyber attacks. This is important because vulnerability to basic attacks can mark us out as target for more in-depth unwanted attention from cyber criminals and others.
Certification gives us peace of mind that our defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.
Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections we need to put in place are the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out.
