Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked. Because of this our advice is designed to prevent these attacks. Next2IT works with your organisation to verify your security and help submit your assessment for Cyber Essentials approval. What’s more, we also include a vulnerability scan for your entire network as part of our Cyber Essentials package. We want Cyber Essentials to be more than just a certification, we want to help improve your business cybersecurity posture now and for the future!
Firstly, our self-assessment option gives you protection against a wide variety of the most common cyber attacks. This is important because vulnerability to simple attacks can mark you out as a target for more in-depth unwanted attention from cybercriminals and others.
Secondly, certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.
Cyber Essentials shows you how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks.
Cyber Essentials Plus
Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protection you need to put in place is the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out.
Alternatively, you can familiarise yourself with cybersecurity terminology, gaining enough knowledge to begin securing your IT.
