Essentials Certified

With predictions of cybercrime increasing to $6 trillion by 2021* and criminals focusing more on small and medium enterprises, mitigating risk is now critical. Cyber Essentials certification can help mitigate risk against 80% of common internet threats.

There are two levels of certification for Cyber Essentials:
Cyber Essentials Basic and Cyber Essentials Plus.

The CE Basic Program requires organizations to successfully complete a set of statements which are then audited by a third party before certification is awarded. This audit is conducted by a Certification Body which has been approved by CyberNB the National Authority for Canada and the Accreditation Body for Cyber Essentials Canada.

The CE Plus (CE+) Program includes the Basic CE statements, together with a requirement for businesses to have a third-party carry out a successful vulnerability assessment before certification can be awarded.
