What does Cyber Essentials accreditation mean?


Jointly developed by the UK government and cybersecurity industry, Cyber Essentials gives UK businesses a baseline standard to work on, to protect themselves from cyber attack.

The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common Internet-based threats to cybersecurity::

  • hacking — exploiting known vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, using widely available tools and techniques
  • phishing — and other ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
  • password guessing — manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet, by guessing passwords

You can be assured that we take our data security very seriously, we value and protect client data against cyber threats, and we are GDPR compliant.
