WhyCyber Essentials? It’s not just about security; it’s about trust
BIT Security provides cyber security services for businesses of all sizes, with expertise in providing the UK government backed Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
The two government-backed certification schemes help businesses to improve their cybersecurity posture and are backed by the National Cyber Security Centre. Both schemes are based on the same technical controls, but Cyber Essentials Plus requires a more rigorous assessment process that is checked by a third party to ensure the controls are correctly implemented.

Cyber Essentials is the UK government’s flagship cyber security framework, which sets out the five essential areas to help protect your business from common online threats. Achieving certification demonstrates that you have taken these steps to secure your IT systems and protect against risks such as hackers and viruses.
The Cyber Essentials Plus is audited certification, it builds on the self-assessment by adding an onsite assessment of your cybersecurity controls. Achieving this certification shows that you have gone further than the basic requirements in protecting your business from potential online attack.
BIT Security offers expert guidance for businesses with little or no cyber security knowledge through the cost-effective Assistance service. This starts from £295 +VAT, (plus self-assessment costs), making it an affordable way of getting certified with minimal hassle or expense.
Once you are certified and as part of the Cyber Essentials scheme free cyber insurance is available (to UK companies with a turnover of less than £20 million). This provides you with peace of mind regarding the financial impact of any data breaches or other liabilities arising from potential security incidents that may occur after achieving certification.
At BIT Security we understand how important it is for businesses to remain compliant whilst ensuring their cybersecurity programs are up to date beyond just meeting basic requirements. We can assist by providing ongoing consultancy and advice on best practice measures for improving your cybersecurity strategy according to current industry trends and threats – enabling you to keep up with today’s ever–changing digital landscape without compromising on cost or convenience.
When payment is made, login details will be sent to you to access the IASME on-line assessment platform, from there you can begin your certification. Please be aware you will have 6 months to complete your assessment before your account is archived by IASME. Unfortunately, we cannot issue a refund if this happens, so please do not apply until you think you are ready for the assessment.
