What is Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials Plus is an expansion of the basic Cyber Essentials accreditation. It takes you through the same self-assessment evaluation exercise that determines whether a business has the required levels of understanding to help guard them against a cyber-attack, but requires additional external verification.

It offers a catalogue of good cyber security practices drawn from best practice guidance from government, industry and academia. It gives a business the ability to assess its cyber security level and display a Cyber Essentials certificate to build customer trust.
