Avenue Business Solutions can help you become Cyber Essentials Certified. Our service includes a review of your self-assessments and certification.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed cyber security certification scheme that sets out a baseline of cyber security suitable for all organisations in all sectors. The main benefit is that when implemented correctly, it can prevent almost 80% of cyber-attacks.

Once you are Cyber Essentials certified, you may wish to undergo Cyber Essentials+ certification. Our consultant would make an onsite visit to conduct an audit of your IT systems and various internal vulnerability tests.

Correct implementation of Cyber Essentials provides assurance to your customers since you will have taken recommended action to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats.

As part of certification, if your turnover is less than £20,000,000 you are entitled to automatic Cyber Liability insurance cover.
