Cyber Essentials is a Government backed scheme that helps to protect organisations, whatever their size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks. The Cyber Essentials scheme identifies some fundamental technical security controls that an organisation needs to have in place to help defend against Internet-borne threats.

Selected by industry experts, the technical controls within the scheme reflect those covered in well-established standards, such as the ISO/IEC 27000 series, the Information Security Forum’s Standard of Good Practice for Information Security and the Standard for Information Assurance for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises.

More information about the scheme can be found here.

Thompson Smith and Puxon is pleased to hold the Cyber Essentials accreditation.
