Not only did we help Hargreave Contracting certify against Cyber Essentials, we also helped implement various solutions, tailored uniquely for them to ensure their business has the ultimate defence against cyber threats.
All reviews are carried out by our Managing Director, Phil Donoghue (mug shot on the left!), who is a certified Cyber Essentials and Cyber Assure Assessor - he also lives and breathes cyber security!
Here's what's included with your Free Cyber Security Review...
What's the difference between the Review & Submit plan and the Fully Managed plan?
Our Review & Submit plan is for businesses who are already familiar with Cyber Essentials and feel they have the controls in place, or are renewing a previous ceritifcation. You may need someone to review the application for compliance to the latest standard, or advise what changes you may need to make in order to comply. Once we confirm it's good to go it can be submitted and assessed by our assessors.
Our Fully Managed plan is aimed at those who are brand new to Cyber Essentials and/or don't potentially have security controls in place. Fully Managed is if you need someone to guide you through the certification process from start to finish and do all of the 'heavy lifting'.
Whichever plan you choose, our team will be dedicated to your organisation and guarantee that you pass first time.
How long does Certification take?
The time it takes is different for every business but typically we can complete a 'Review & Submit' certification within 24 hours and a 'Fully Managed' certification within a week, providing you can get the right controls in place within that timeframe.
The timeframe does somewhat rely on your business as the certification and questions that need answering will be unique to your business, so we'll need to get to know how you operate and ask questions in order to get you certified.
What are the benefits of Cyber Essentials?
The key benefits will be the peace of mind in knowing you have taken all the right basic steps to keep your business systems and information secure from cyber attacks.
Other benefits include the ability to do more business as some contracts now ask whether you are cyber Essentials certified and this will increase over time.
Do I need an onsite audit for Cyber Essentials?
An onsite audit isn't required for Cyber Essentials but it will be if you decide to become Cyber Essentials Plus certified.
The key difference between the two certifications is that in Plus, what you state in your certification is physically checked.
