Launched in 2014, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus are UK certification schemes that are backed by the UK Government and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). The scheme in essence is a way for an organisation to showcase excellent cyber security throughout their workforce and encourage better security practices.
But do you need a good understanding of IT? The answer is – perhaps . There is training that comes with the certification so you can develop a grounding in what you need to know by going through the process but having an experienced IT partner to guide you through can save many hours of time and make sure you achieve the accreditation first time around. That’s especially true if your IT partner has done it all many times before.
