Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats.

Cyber Essentials Certification - Protect Your Business from Digital Threats

The importance of safeguarding your business from cyber threats cannot be overstated. Cyberattacks can disrupt operations, compromise sensitive data, and damage your reputation.

That’s where Cyber Essentials certification comes in! SOTS is your trusted partner in achieving this certification and fortifying your business against online risks.

What Is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a UK government-backed certification program designed to help businesses, both large and small, bolster their cybersecurity defences. Attaining this certification demonstrates your commitment to protecting your organisation and its digital assets.

Just 6% of UK businesses had Cyber Essentials certification in 2022, and 1% have Cyber Essentials Plus certification – this is largely due to low awareness of the schemes.

The Benefits of Cyber Essentials Certification

Enhanced Security

Achieving Cyber Essentials certification means implementing fundamental cyber security measures that safeguard your business against common online threats. This includes securing your internet connection, securing devices and software, and controlling access to your data and services.

Business Continuity

By fortifying your cyber security, you reduce the risk of cyberattacks disrupting your business operations. A robust cyber security framework ensures continuity, even in the face of threats.

Customer Confidence

Displaying the Cyber Essentials badge reassures your clients and partners that you take their data and privacy seriously. This can lead to increased trust and potential new opportunities.

Regulatory Compliance

Cyber Essentials can help your business meet regulatory requirements and data protection standards. Compliance is essential, not just for legal reasons, but also to uphold your reputation.

Tender for Government Contracts

If you would like to bid for central government contracts which involve handling sensitive and personal information or the provision of certain technical products and services, you will require Cyber Essentials Certification.
