Frequently asked questions

It is a ba lp protect you from cyber threats. It is a good first step on the ladder of cyber security that can help lead you to Cyber Essentials PLUS, ISO 27001 and more. Having Cyber Essentials will help ensure you have your business cyber security basics covered.

Both Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus demonstrate that your organisation is taking cyber security seriously and has the five technical controls in place: access controls, firewalls and routers, malware protection, secure configuration, and software updates. Cyber Essentials is an independently verified self-assessment questionnaire and the goal is to get all questions correct/compliant to obtain a pass. Cyber Essentials Plus is the next step after Cyber Essentials. It can be thought of as an independent verification of everything that was claimed in Cyber Essentials. This extra level of scrutiny means your Cyber Essentials Plus badge will hold more weight with potential customers. Whilst Cyber Essentials Plus is the more expensive of the two, it is held in higher regard and much of the work is done by the Certification Body. If you feel a bit overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, don’t worry – we have a range of packages to help you through the process.
  • Enhanced security – helps protect your organisation from the most common internet based cyber attacks such as phishing, malware, ransomware, password guessing and network attacks.
  • Simple and cost effective – a simple process with a Cyber Essentials certification fee starting from £295.
  • Gain and retain business – an increasing number of public, private and third sector contracts are mandating or actively encouraging Cyber Essentials from their suppliers.
  • Aligns with GDPR – recognised by the Information Commissioner’s Office as a scheme that can provide security assurances that help protect personal data.
  • Flexible scheme – regardless of sector or size, the scheme reviews basic, yet effective, technical controls an organisation has in place. The scheme also recognises that not all organisations have a dedicated IT department, or an in-depth knowledge of cyber security.

Once you have your logins you will be able to access the IASME portal and be able enter your answers.

Once you have completed your answers, please submit the assessment. We will then assign an assessor and you will be scheduled for marking. Once marked you will get your results from the IASME portal, you will either pass, fail, or get asked for more information.

If you fail or get asked for more information you will have a chance to review your answers and update them using the guidance notes the assessor leaves for you.

You can then resubmit and once again you will be scheduled for marking with hopefully a pass being the result. You may get asked for more information again which will require you to readdress it, if you fail twice though that would mean you would have to repurchase Cyber Essentials to be able to retry.
