Cyber Essentials


Cyber security is essential in today’s digital landscape and any business can be at risk, which is why it pays to protect your organisation.

Cyber Essentials is a national, government backed certification that helps organisations safeguard their systems and employees, against the most common types of cyber-attack. By committing to this scheme, you can reduce your risk of a breach by at least 80%, ultimately allowing you and your team to work safely and keep your valuable business data secure.

The Cyber Essentials scheme has become so well recognised, many businesses now require their suppliers and partners to have this accreditation before successfully awarding business. Gaining this certification not only ensures the security of your business, it demonstrates to your clients that you take system security seriously.

What are the requirements?

Accreditation is straight forward and completed via an independent self-service portal where you will need to complete an online questionnaire. This means you will benefit from your new accreditation quickly, especially when tendering for future contracts. However prior to submission, we will take you through the following:

Registration & Preparation – We send over a detailed questionnaire that will closely mirror the questions you will be asked during submission.

Workshop – Following your submission of the test questionnaire, we will run a workshop to go through your responses. In this review we will provide input on your non-compliant answers and stress test your technical responses.

Remediation – Working with your Office Administrators and existing IT resource, we will put together a set of actions and projects that will not only ensure your compliance, but will help tighten up your approach to security across the business. Stripe OLT will also offer quotable support for any remediation projects, that may be required following this.
