Cyber Essentials

Protecting your business from approximately 80% of the current cyber security threats.

Service Overview: 

As a Cyber Essentials Certification Body for the UK Government-backed scheme, CND is able to assess and issue various certifications, including Cyber Essentials (CE) and Cyber Essentials Plus.

Cyber Essentials: the basic level of certification. You complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), and we verify that your responses comply with the standards.

Cyber Essentials PLUS: Our assessors will audit your SAQ responses during an onsite visit.  During the visit, our assessors will conduct a number of scans, visual inspections, and test scenarios on a representative sample of your systems to ensure your organisation is actively meeting the CE standards. 


Service Details: 

Our returning clients or those who are IT experts may opt to achieve their certification through a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) without any CND guidance. CND will assess the responses and issue a pass or fail.

If support is required, CND consultants can work with you to complete the SAQ. If your organisation does not meet the CE criteria, we will recommend a remediation plan to achieve compliance prior to SAQ submission. CND can also assist with any remediation under a separate arrangement.

To achieve the Cyber Essentials PLUS certification, our consultants will identify a representative sample of your sites and systems in order to audit your SAQ responses. We work with you to undertake much of the work remotely and to minimise the likelihood of issues on the day. The number of delivery days required will be determined in a scoping call prior to service commencement.
