A Guide To Cyber Security Certifications in the UK

Ever since the Cyber Essentials scheme launched in 2014, SMEs and large companies have used it as a way to strut their cybersecurity expertise and comply with industry regulations. Those conscientious companies that complete the scheme get themselves listed on a searchable register of certified businesses and organisations.

Unfortunately, many companies are in the dark about the Cyber Essentials scheme. According to the Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2019, only 11% of businesses are aware of the Cyber Essentials certification and what it means. That’s why we’ve created this guide to take you through the cybersecurity journey.

The truth is that the journey to cybersecurity compliance isn’t as simple as filling out an application. The road can wind from the basics of Cyber Essentials to the independent auditing of Cyber Essentials Plus. Some organisations even choose to go down the root of ISO27001 compliance.

In this guide, we’re going to cut through the noise and tell you what the Cyber Essentials scheme is, how you can get certified and help you understand whether or not certification is right for you. We’ll also look at how you can add ISO27001 to the mix as well.
