Frequently asked questions

What are the five key technical controls of Cyber Essentials/Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials looks at five key areas of cyber security to ensure your business is operating to strong security standards. These areas are:

  • Access control
  • Firewalls and routers
  • Malware protection
  • Secure configuration
  • Software updates

What’s the difference between Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus?

A Cyber Essentials assessment consists of completing a questionnaire covering the five key technical controls. Cyber Essentials Plus goes a step further to also include a vulnerability scan of externally facing devices in scope along with a workstation assessment and an internal vulnerability scan.

Does my business have to achieve Cyber Essentials before it achieves Cyber Essentials Plus?

Yes, you must achieve Cyber Essentials first before you can achieve Cyber Essentials Plus.

Does Cyber Essentials Plus require a site visit?

Ideally yes, although in certain circumstances, it can be done remotely.

Do you need to test all the workstations in a business for Cyber Essentials Plus?

If all your workstations are from a common build, we only need to undertake sample-based testing. However, if your organisation has multiple build types and you support BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), then each one will require testing individually.

I have ISO 27001, do I still need Cyber Essentials?

Yes. Cyber Essentials focusses on fundamental IT controls, whereas ISO 27001 takes a more holistic approach, incorporating policies and procedures. As ISO 27001 is much more involved, you’ll find it easier to obtain Cyber Essentials/Cyber Essentials Plus certification if you’re already ISO 27001 compliant. We recommend achieving Cyber Essentials in addition to ISO 27001 as it demonstrates your commitment good security practices, and some business/customers may only look for your Cyber Essentials certification, or not understand the difference between Cyber Essentials and ISO 27001.
