Crest and CESG have been working closely to develop the assessment framework for Cyber Essentials Scheme, which addresses the need of creating a baseline for UK cyber security and focuses on five essential mitigations within the context of the Government's 10 Steps to Cyber Security guidance. More information about this scheme can be found here.
As a business, ProCheckUp understand how important it is to keep expenditure to the minimum. This independent assessment is aimed at organisations of all sizes and from all sectors, helping to assure that the fundamental security controls are in place, mitigating the risk from internet-based threats.
Cyber Essentials Assessment will be sufficient for some organisations, whereas the majority of organisations will get a better understanding of what additional security assurance related activities, such as penetration testing or similar, should take place. Additionally the independent certificate will demonstrate to your customers that your organisation is security savvy and take cyber security seriously.
