Government-backed assurance

Many organisations are now looking to the government-backed scheme to give their existing and potential customers more confidence. The Cyber Essentials scheme looks at 5 key areas.

1 Firewalls and gateways – Protecting your boundaries can heighten your defences against unauthorised access to your systems and malicious cyber-attacks.

2 Secure configuration – Make your networks more secure by ensuring that your equipment is configured correctly, all unnecessary software is deleted, and security software is kept up to date.

3 User access control – To minimise the potential damage that could be done if an account is misused or stolen.

4 Virus and malware protection – There are various ways in which malware can find its way onto a computer. A user may open an infected email, browse a compromised website, or open an unknown file from removable storage media.

5 Keep devices and software up to date – No matter which phones, tablets, laptops, or computers your organisation is using, it’s important they are kept up to date at all times.
