Cyber Essentials Services

Protect your organisation with UK Government approved cyber security accreditations.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a range of the most common cyber attacks.

There are currently two levels of Cyber Essentials: Basic and Plus. These services are priced according to the number of employees in your organisation.

If your organisation would like to bid for central government contracts, you will require a Cyber Essentials Basic certification in order to tender.

We Provide a Fully Supported Service to Ensure You Reach Your Required Level of Certification.

What Are The Different Levels of Certification?

Cyber Essentials Basic

Cyber Essentials Basic is a fully UK Government backed scheme that involves answering a cyber security questionnaire. These answers are then fully assessed by an approved certification body such as ourselves.

Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials Plus is a technical assessment of your organisation by an approved third party. It can only take place alongside, or after a successful Cyber Essentials Basic audit and shows that your organisation is operating securely.

What is Included in the Assessment?

Internal Vulnerability Scan
A comprehensive vulnerability scan is conducted to identify weaknesses or potential vulnerabilities in your systems. Identified issues can then be addressed promptly through remediation strategies such as software updates, patches, or security enhancements.
External Vulnerability Scan
A full external vulnerability scan is performed against your organisation’s publicly facing infrastructure. This identifies any vulnerabilities that a remote attacker may be able to exploit.
Malware Download Tests
All devices in scope are tested against their resiliency to common forms of malware. Various configurations are checked from initial download controls to execution policies.
Multi Factor Authentication Checks
Multi factor authentication is a key security control that can help prevent your organisation from being compromised. Ruptura InfoSecurity will review the configuration of your authentication controls to ensure that MFA is enabled where possible.
We will assess your organisation to ensure that users have not been given excessive permissions over what they need to conduct their day to day activities.

What Are The Benefits of Cyber Essentials Plus?

Provide Extensive Assurance

Clients will have the assurance that your organisation has been fully assessed by a trusted and approved cyber security company.
