Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials Certification.

The UK Government, in conjunction with the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME) and the Information Security Forum (ISF), established the Cyber Essentials certification as a method of ensuring organisations have the fundamental technical and procedural controls in place to protect their digital assets.

Gaining the Cyber Essentials certification is mandatory for suppliers bidding for government contracts that involve their handling of certain sensitive and personal information.

Outside of the mandatory requirement, the CE and more in-depth CE Plus certifications can be used to demonstrate the coverage of security fundamentals within an organisation.

MDSec are able to conduct CE engagements in a cost-effective manner, employing significant automated processes. Where organisations are unsure of their readiness for CE certification, a gap analysis can be performed to discuss the requirements and expectations at a high level and help organisations to prepare for certification.

MDSec is frequently able to recommend detailed, pragmatic solutions for companies trying to reach specific requirements of the certification.
