"As a young business we were daunted by the prospect of becoming ISO 27001 accredited so we took the decision to seek consultancy from QMS, prior to an audit, and it was the best decision we could have made. The 3 days that we spent with your consultant (Brett) was great. He was enthusiastic, engaging, genuinely interested in our business, and he provided a great deal of insight into how we can evolve our processes to ensure we are operating as securely as possible. We have implemented a lot of his suggestions already and can see the benefits. We would not hesitate is using QMS again in the future for other accreditations."Ben Hancock, Managing Director

As last year, it was great to have an auditor who not only reviewed all our evidence, but was also so well-informed on the standard, and able to offer useful advice.Sarah Gordon, Associate Director
"The consultant was very professional, prompt and very helpful through out the whole process. He was supportive, providing good guidance and feedback in a very positive manner."Derek Finan Eng Tech MIPHE, Quality Manager

Cyber Essentials Plus Assist: Pre-assessment consultancy
Upgrade to the Cyber Essentials Plus Assist service and we will include a pre-assessment consultancy with one our experienced Cyber Essential Consultants to support you as you prepare for the onsite Assessment. During the consultancy they will carry out a gap-analysis and vulnerability assessment, while also offering advice and guidance on the requirements of the scheme – helping you to increase your chances of passing the onsite assessment first time.
Cyber Essentials Certification Process:
To begin the process, if you have not chosen the Cyber Essentials Plus Assist Service, an SBCS Consultant will contact you to provide an in-depth understanding of what is required from your organisation during the onsite Assessment.
Providing the online Cyber Essentials assessment has taken place and the basic level of Cyber Essentials Certification has been achieved, an on-site assessment will take place. During this assessment the SBCS Consultant will review your processes against the requirements of the scheme, highlighting any areas that requirement improvement. Once complete, a report will be issued, detailing the findings.
An SBCS Assessor must now review the evidence that the SBCS Consultant gathered during the onsite Assessment. Providing the SBCS Assessor is satisfied that the evidence supplied meets the requirements of the Cyber Essentials Plus Standard, you will be awarded the Cyber Essentials Plus Certificate and sent a copy of the Report.
