Why Is CyberEssentials So Important?
Cyber Essentials (CE) is a United Kingdom certification scheme designed to show a company has a minimum level of protection in cyber security. CE is the minimum certification required for any government supplier responsible for handling personal information in the UK. It requires annual assessments to maintain certification. Backed by the UK government and overseen by the National Cyber Security Centre.
For SMEs, a CE certification demonstrates you’re serious about security – both to customers and regulators. It encourages organisations to adopt good practice in information security.
