CYBER SECURITY SERVICES
CYBER ESSENTIALS

Cyber Essentials certification demonstrates a base-level appreciation of cyber security within your organisation. The assessment process comprises of an online questionnaire being completed by the organisation, which captures information that supports the five controls being in place. 

With cyber threats increasing in both volume and sophistication, Cyber Essentials validates that a business has introduced proven cyber security and information assurance controls in line with recommended good practice.

The UK Government through the NCSC recognise the challenge from the current cyber threat and have the ambition to tackle it head on. Cyber Essentials is very much at the heart of their National Cyber Security Strategy and through gaining the certification. NGS is making an important and valuable contribution towards the Government’s aim of making the UK the safest place to do business online.
