Cyber Essentials

Protected, accredited, and meeting all regulatory requirements. Cyber Essentials ensures you’re meeting strict security regulations and your clients’ expectations of safety.

Secure, Compliant and Diligently Defended

Cyber Essentials does more than protect your business data. It assures clients that you have their security in mind, confirms your commitment to total user protection, and demonstrates that your business follows its every regulatory responsibility.

With Cyber Essentials, your security setup is held to strict government-approved standards and accredited by us at Novem – a registered Cyber Essentials Certification Body.

Ensure Total Regulatory Compliance

Match the strict security standards of national data laws such as GDPR. We ensure your every provision is up to exacting government standards and international law.

Meet Government Contract Standards

Provide more business opportunities. A Cyber Essentials certification ensures your business meets the service standards of commercial and government contracts.

Boost Company Reputation

Your clients and partners are increasingly security conscious. With Cyber Essentials, you demonstrate a dedication to stringent data protection standards.


Your business may be eligible for up to £25,000 indemnity cover if its turnover is in excess of £20million.

The 5 Key Technical Controls

Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus are both partially assessed on 5 key technical controls – all of which are thoroughly tested and assessed as part of our accreditation services.

  • Firewalls and gateways  that monitor incoming and outgoing internet data
  • Secure configurations  that keep your software, data and devices defended
  • Access controls  to limit access to your most sensitive data
  • Malware protection  that identifies, isolates and eliminates online threats
  • Patching and updates  to keep your software protected and performing perfectly

Ensure everyone, from stakeholders to regulatory bodies, can trust in your business defences. Talk to us today about getting your Cyber Essentials accreditation.
