What is Cyber Essentials?

As more media stories emerge of organisations exposing customers’ information to cyber threats, it is becoming increasingly important that you protect your organisation against cyber-attacks and demonstrate this to your customers.

Cyber Essentials is a government backed cyber security certification scheme which provides you with the 5 key controls needed to manage cyber threats and prevent around 80% of cyber-attacks from happening.

With QMS, you can implement these controls to protect your organisation against the vast majority of cyber attacks. By choosing our Cyber Essentials Assist service, you can benefit from the experience of our consultants, who will support you along the way. They’ll provide advice and guidance to help you increase your chances of passing the Cyber Essentials Online Assessment first time.

Here are the top benefits of using the Cyber Essentials framework:

  1. Secure configuration – By configuring computer and network devices you can identify systems and databases that are no longer required, giving you the opportunity to reduce storage and bandwidth consumption, as well as related security vulnerabilities.

  2. Boundary firewalls and Internet gateways – by managing boundary firewalls you will have more control over server traffic, helping you to better understand and manage your bandwidth requirements, reducing the risk of attacks from external threats

  3. Access control and administrative privilege management – By improving the way you manage access controls and administrative privileges you will be able to reduce inside threats by reducing the number of opportunities where staff could install unwanted software on computers.

  4. Patch management – By keeping software and licences up to date you will help to keep your company more secure. Patches are issued to improve the performance of specific products, both for security reasons and performance, meaning that failing to install them could result in system crashes, threats and reduced performance.

  5. Malware protection – Malware protection provides security – protecting against viruses and other threats. By installing Malware protection on your devices you can help to reduce downtime and risks by protecting devices throughout the company
