Cyber Essentials accreditation is the UK Government's scheme which is intended to help all organisations to be safer when operating digitally.
Why Cyber Essentials?
The scheme is promoted by the UK Government. It is also backed by industries such as the FSB (formally Federation of small businesses), the CBI and a number of insurance companies.
The UK Government has required all suppliers bidding for sensitive/personal information handling contracts to be certified against the scheme since October 2014.
