Just to name a couple of businesses that have fallen victim to cyber attacks in the last year.

Any business, big or small, can be the target of cyber crimes, which not have only costly implications, but can mean the loss of your data and those of your customers.

To protect your reputation and your finances, your business needs to implement the right security controls.

This is why Cyber Essential has been launched, the government backed and industry-supported scheme to guide businesses in protecting themselves against cyber threats.

Whatever the size of your company, including both private and public sector, Cyber Essential can make sure you have the basic cyber security practices in place to protect your business from the most common cyber threats.

Organisations that implement these security measures will attain a Cyber Essential certification badge, demonstrating to your customers, partners or clients that your company takes cyber security seriously – boosting your reputation and giving you a competitive advantage.
