Why do I need Cyber Essentials Certification?

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a UK government-backed certification standard that helps you create an essential security baseline to protect your business from everyday cyber threats.
It helps you stand out from the competition, meet the requirements of government contracts, and protect your business from up to 80% of common cyber-attack methods.

Cyber Essentials Certification is crucial for small business owners in the UK for several reasons:

Protection from Cyber Threats: The certification ensures that your business has essential cyber protection measures, reducing the risk of cyber threats.
Business Reputation: Demonstrating your Cyber Essentials Certification can boost your business’s reputation, showing customers and partners that you take cybersecurity seriously.
Contractual Requirements: Some UK contracts, especially government contracts, may require businesses to have this certification before bidding or partnering.
Regulatory Compliance: Being certified can help ensure you comply with UK regulations regarding cybersecurity.
Financial Protection: Cyber incidents can be costly. By implementing the measures needed for certification, you might save your business from potential financial losses.
