The importance of Cyber Essentials
In 2014, the UK government identified the growing risk cyber attacks posed to UK businesses. The government recognised that these threats could be evaded by following a set of basic security policies and processes. As such, they launched the Cyber Essentials scheme, developing a set of essential security measures to protect organisations throughout the UK.
The certification scheme ensures a standard level of cyber security across organisations, and it’s proven to be an extremely effective framework for organisations to protect the data of their users and employees.
