What is Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials Plus offers a higher level of assurance through the external testing of the organisation’s cyber security approach. This encompasses a detailed assessment of the infrastructure including a detailed examination of the technologies that are used within the organisation. Given the more resource intensive nature of this process, the Cyber Essentials Plus badge will cost more than the basic Cyber Essentials certification.
On successful completion of the Cyber Essentials Plus a certificate will be awarded which will allow the business to display the appropriate Cyber Essentials badge on their website and other business documents.
