If your organisation is not appropriately protected against the threat of cyber attacks, even the simplest virus or malware could result in loss of company data, disruptions to cash flow, and disruptions to business operations.

Customers may stop choosing you as their supplier, and the damages to your reputation may make it difficult to attract new business. You need to protect your company against these dangers. You need Cyber Essentials.

Cyber Essentials is an assurance scheme developed by the UK government to fulfil two functions. It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet-based threats, and offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions.

Digital Armour can help your business achieve Cyber Essentials by conducting a compliance pre-check to ensure that your procedures and policies are up to scratch. We can also offer on-site assistance in implementing new technologies and one-to-one guidance with an assessor.

Cyber Essentials will protect an organisation against common threats, and they can display a Cyber Essentials badge on their websites and documentation to prove their credentials. Cyber Essentials are also a mandatory requirement for any business wishing to bid for government contracts which involve handling personal information and providing IT products and services.

As a Cyber Essentials PLUS certified business, Digital Armour can help your organisation prepare for assessment by identifying potential problem areas and supplying or configuring any software and hardware you require.

We are also a Cyber Essentials certification body, licensed to undertake assessments and confer Cyber Essentials credentials on your business. We can re-certify clients who have gained their Cyber Essentials through us in the past.


Cyber Essentials PLUS

Cyber Essentials PLUS

Cyber Essentials PLUS confers all the benefits of Cyber Essentials, but it also requires an independent assessment of your security controls, to verify that you do indeed have the five technical security controls in place. The assessment includes a vulnerability scan to identify unpatched or unsupported software, open ports, incorrect firewall configuration, and so on.

This objective analysis results in a real improvement to your security controls, making Cyber Essentials PLUS a highly-regarded accreditation, and well worth achieving for businesses which want to strengthen their cyber defences.

We can carry out vulnerability scans or security health checks if you are moving ahead to Cyber Essentials PLUS certification.

"When a fellow medium-sized business reached out and asked us to help them achieve their Cyber Essentials accreditation, we couldn't believe what they had been through with some of our competitors."
