Looking to gain the Cyber Essentials certification?

If you need to demonstrate to your clients that you have taken all Cyber Security precautions, Cyber Essentials certification is the solution. 

We discuss how CyberSmart is the best way to achieve this government standard security certification.

CyberSmart is the easiest way to achieve government standard security Cyber Essentials certification. The software is deployed on all your devices, including desktops, laptops, and mobile phones to provide continuous scanning for compliance.

Cyber Essentials is the UK government certification which protects SMEs from 80% of cyber attacks. It’s the recommended level of cybersecurity for all businesses, and required if supplying services to government (www.ncsc.gov.uk/cyberessentials).

Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked. Cyber Essentials is a suite of best practice designed to prevent these attacks.

CyberSmart is an online portal, updated by installed agents on all your devices. The service streamlines the process of gaining the Cyber Essentials accreditation.

Cyber Essentials, like an MOT, is a point in time assessment, conducted once a year. The Cyber Smart software, as well as conducting that assessment, gives you a daily update to confirm all your devices are within compliance.

  • The Cyber Essentials accreditation provides reassurance to customers that you are working to secure your IT against a cyber attack;
  • It gives you a clear picture of your organisations cyber security measures in place;
  • Some government contracts require Cyber Essentials certification;
  • CyberSmart is delivered with easy deployment on to devices including desktops, laptops, and mobile phones;
