Help guard your organisation against cyber threats by achieving compliance against the Government-backed scheme.
Accreditation is available in various formats, to suit your requirements and the level of support you need to protect your organisation from cyber crime.
Centre for Assessment offers Cyber Essentials accreditation (with or without support from our technical experts), Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation to fulfil contractual requirements, or Cyber Essentials Plus Extra if you need the most comprehensive package on the market.
Fill out the following form to start your Cyber Essentials application.
As it is a Government-mandated scheme, any organisation looking to tender for work with a public-sector body will be required to have met the Cyber Essentials standard. It is also an increasingly more common requirement for tender applications in the private sector.
In addition to this, heavily regulated sectors like Medical, Legal and Financial, where more sensitive client data is stored, can use the Cyber Essentials scheme to help with regulatory compliance.
For example, The Law Society references Cyber Essentials as a “should have” in both their Lexcel and CQS Management Frameworks.Apply Now
Cyber Essentials requires only basic information security hygiene measures to be in place which, when implemented correctly, will significantly reduce the level of vulnerability to external cyber attacks.
Applicable to organisations of any shape and size, the scheme has 5 critical controls

Fill in the questionnaire and then our technical expert will call you to review your answers and to advise you about any gaps. After the call, you will feel much more confident in your self-assessment and can submit it using our online portal. Our expert will then formally validate your answers and, if successful, you will get your certificate.
This collaborative approach will help you get the most out of Cyber Essentials accreditation.

This assessment type also involves penetration testing, mobile device testing and on-site assessment by an ACE registered assessor, who will access the required network and test for any weaknesses or vulnerabilities that may not have been previously found. A full, comprehensive report is then given to the client to highlight findings during the assessment, and any improvements that need to be made to ensure quality Cyber Security. This is then reviewed by the assessor and certification can then be awarded pending results.

We then work with clients to help improve and manage systems from the findings of the pre-assessment and help to ensure that any issues are rectified. Once satisfied, you would then be assessed under the scheme rules, following the same process as Cyber Essentials PLUS. If for any reason the standard is not met, this level of assessment will also cover a FREE re-assessment to ensure that clients are given ampler opportunities to ensure that their systems meet the scheme rules. This is recommended for companies that are looking to ensure that they meet the standard with as much support and information as available.

Once you have logged in to the portal you can start your application. Your application will be verified by a Cyber Essentials auditor and you will be advised of your results.
