Cyber Essentials & Cyber essentials Plus

 You have probably already heard of Cyber Essentials?  It is a is a government-backed certification scheme that ensures companies are practicing good cyber hygiene. There are 2 levels of certification, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.  Both give you protection against the most common cyber attacks. Cyber Essentials achieves this through self assessment whilst with Cyber Essentials Plus, a hands-on technical cerification is also carried out.
