The Cyber Essentials scheme provides organisations with clarity on the essential security controls they need to have in place to reduce the risk posed by threats on the Internet. Organisations can then make this a selling point, demonstrating to their customers through the Cyber Essentials badge that they take cyber security seriously.

It really depends on the size and the urgency of the company. From our experience, the average time to achieve Cyber Essentials for a SMB is 2 days (which includes on-boarding, making the entire IT systems compliant and reviewing & approving a questionnaire). Many of our customers have done it in a few hours!

The short answer is no. No security measure can guarantee you will not be hacked. The longer answer is that, when successfully implemented, it will prevent 80%+ of cyber attacks. Cyber Essentials is a first stepping stone towards data protection and information security. Insurance coverage is included with every certification in the event of an incident.

We offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If you’re not happy for any reason with the platform, let us know and we will issue a full refund (minus the cost of any achieved certification). We will ask you to help us improve the platform for others by requesting your feedback on what we could do better.

The cloud-based dashboard integrates with G-Suite and Microsoft 365 to make on-boarding as smooth as possible. The desktop app is a stand-alone application which runs on Windows and Mac. The app does not disturb or interfere with any other software you may be running.
