The Get a Lot of Help package

The Get A Lot Of Help package will give you a good chance of achieving IASME-accredited Cyber Essentials Plus certification at the first attempt. It is designed for organisations with little or no knowledge of the five controls and testing conditions, as well as those that do not know their scope or the IP range that should be tested.

We also recommend this solution for large organisations with complex organisational structures.

What's included in Cyber Essentials Plus Get a Lot of Help?

Cyber Essentials certification and precheck & Cyber Essentials Plus certification

  • A precheck of your Cyber Essentials questionnaire answers by one of our security experts, to ensure you have addressed all compliance requirements.
  • Access to the IASME portal where you will submit your self-assessment.
  • External vulnerability scans;
  • Internal vulnerability scans;
  • An on-site assessment; and
  • Your Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certificates.

Cyber Essentials Toolkit

The most important aspect of your CES documentation is that it must be your own work and in your own words. You will need to complete the documents in the toolkit to reflect your organisational culture, your processes and your technologies.

  • Designed to reflect the requirements of the Cyber Essentials Scheme
  • Built on expert knowledge from numerous cyber security implementation projects
  • Ensure that the controls you are implementing are aligned to the requirements of the Cyber Essentials Scheme

Cyber Essentials Onsite Consultancy – 1 day

This full day of consultancy support is designed to help you achieve certification, and can be conducted on-site or remotely.

It will review your security posture in advance, helping you with various aspects of certification-readiness, including defining the scope of the certification, reviewing and setting the IP testing range, and supporting efforts to implement the five controls.

This service is ideal for organisations with more complex infrastructures, as well as those with little knowledge of information security and the five controls. It is also suitable for large organisations with complex structures, although we suggest they start with a Cyber Essentials Plus Health Check.

Your bundle will also include the following:

  • External vulnerability scan;
  • On-site assessment; and
  • Internal vulnerability scan.

How the application process works:

  • We send you access details for the IASME Cyber Essentials portal via email.

  • We conduct the on-site assessment and perform the necessary internal scan on a sample of your Internet-facing devices.
  • We provide you with the results of the internal scan and on-site assessment.

See what our customers think about this service

“Really pleased with the support offered by Matthew and the team. Straightforward advice on how to complete the form and pragmatic ways to comply with the requirements. We have been discussing getting Cyber Essentials certification since 2017 but have always put it off, being daunted by the process and speaking to IT consultants who made it sound too complicated. Working with you made the process manageable, straightforward and stress-free. Thank you for all your help!”

Benefits of Cyber Essentials Plus certification

Secure the supply chain

The ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office), whose job it is to uphold the EU GDPR in the UK, recommends Cyber Essentials as “A good starting point” for the cyber security of the IT you rely on to hold and process personal data.

Secure more business

If you would like to bid for central government contracts that involve handling sensitive and personal information or the provision of certain technical products and services, you will require Cyber Essentials certification.

Work with the UK government & MoD

Cyber Essentials Plus will give you the opportunity to work with the UK government and MoD.

Reduce cyber insurance premiums

Cyber insurance agencies look more favourably on organisations that have achieved Cyber Essentials certification.



Cyber Essentials Plus involves a technical audit of the systems that are in scope for Cyber Essentials. This includes a representative set of workstations, mobile devices and build types in use by the organisation end users to complete their day-to-day duties. The number of builds is defined by the number of configurations of operating system and software suites installed. If more than one browser or Office suite is used, each variant will need to be tested. If they are installed on the same build, this is acceptable.

  • This package includes on-site testing at one location, of one type of user account, on up to ten sample devices. Additional workstations, mobile devices and build types may need to be tested to meet the sampling requirements of the scheme. If you require more than ten end-user workstations to be tested, you will need to purchase Cyber Essentials Plus Additional Device Testing. This testing can be conducted remotely in some instances.
  • The package includes a free vulnerability scan for up to 16 IP addresses. If you have more than 16 IP addresses, you will need to purchase additional IP packages in packs of 16. If you fail your external scan, a rescan will need to be purchased, plus any additional IP packages that you need to cover only the failing IP addresses if completed with 14 days of the first passing element.
  • If your business is located outside mainland UK or Northern Ireland, additional expenses will be charged to accommodate our consultant’s travel time and costs for the on-site assessment. These will be billed separately.
  • If you are not successful on your first submission for Cyber Essentials, you have two working days to submit a further attempt for certification. If you are not successful on your second submission, you will be required to wait one month before reattempting at the cost of a new application.
  • If your Cyber Essentials Plus application is unsuccessful, your Cyber Essentials certification may also be revoked.

Test requirements

  • All user devices are subject to testing and will be agreed upon before the testing date, including mobile and BYOD (bring your own device), and must be available for testing.
  • All devices within the scope of testing must be user devices and cannot be built specifically for testing.
  • A local user account with username and password must be available for each user group in scope.
  • Devices must have Internet access, allow emails from our test domain and be accessible by our test web server (
  • You must provide details of a user email account per user group being assessed.
  • Workstation builds must be configured to allow an authenticated vulnerability scan that will determine patch and version numbers of installed software, and you must provide details of the user account to be used.
  • Remote registry must be enabled on the workstation builds, and no global policies that block the authenticated vulnerability scan are permitted.
