Cyber Essentials - Get A Little Help

SKU: G4497
Format: Cyber Essentials Package (Online purchases only)

IT Governance is a CREST-accredited Cyber Essentials certification body, meaning that this service includes an external vulnerability scan that independently verifies your security status.

This service will help you achieve CREST-accredited Cyber Essentials certification with a little help from us. It is conducted online and includes:

  • CREST-accredited certification
  • A documentation toolkit;
  • Two hours of Live Online consultancy; and
  • External vulnerability scan.

The CREST-accredited Cyber Essentials scheme is now closed to new entrants with effect from 1 April 2020. IT Governance is unable to accept new customers under the replacement scheme until contractual issues have been addressed. As soon as they have, we can process new Cyber Essentials certification applications.

Buy now, pay later! Enjoy the benefits of paying by purchase order with an IT Governance corporate account.  Apply online today or call our service centre team on 00 800 48 484 484.

What's included in the Cyber Essentials Get a Little Help Bundle?

Cyber Essentials - Do It Yourself

This Do It Yourself certification package is ideal for introducing the five security controls required for Cyber Essentials certification: secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management and malware protection. This knowledge is necessary to complete the SAQ (self-assessment questionnaire).

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 Live Online Consultancy – 2 hours

This Live Online consultancy service is for 2 hours and is offered via telephone or Skype. This service is ideal for companies not certain about the requirements of the scheme, which option to choose, or how to define the scope of the certification.


Your bundle will also include an external vulnerability scan

How the application process works:

  • We send you details of how to log on to our Cyber Essentials online portal.
  • We book your two hours of Live Online consultancy.
  • You define your scope for testing, which will either be the whole organisation’s enterprise IT or a subset.
  • You complete and submit your self-assessment questionnaire SAQ.
  • We inform you if the SAQ meets the requirements of the Cyber Essentials scheme.
  • You schedule your external vulnerability scan through the portal.
  • Subject to a positive outcome, we issue your Cyber Essentials certificate.

If you need a lot more help than the two hours of Live Online consultancy to define your scope, or to further understand the five Cyber Essentials control areas (secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management and malware protection), we recommend that you purchase our Get A Lot of Help package instead as that includes a full day of on-site consultancy. We will then be able to help you through all areas of the application process in greater detail.


  • You will receive a link to download your documentation toolkit within 48 hours of your purchase.
  • Your Live Online consultancy can be split into several smaller sessions, but any unused time will not be credited back.
  • The package includes a free vulnerability scan of your public facing infrastructure for up to 16 IP addresses.
  • If you have more than 16 IP addresses, please purchase additional IP packages – available in packs of 16.
  • If you fail your external scan, a vulnerability rescan will need to be purchased, plus any additional IP packages that you need.

  • Take the extra step to strengthen your security with Phishing Staff Awareness training

    Phishing Staff Awareness

    Human error is one of the leading causes of data breaches. Failing to train your staff on the dos and don’ts of cyber security could be disastrous. Data breaches not only result in financial losses and penalties but can also damage your reputation as consumers lose faith in your brand. Train your staff and take the extra step to boost your security with a phishing staff awareness course.

    Empower and educate your staff on the right steps to take to keep your organisation and data secure. Achieving Cyber Essentials certification and implementing phishing staff awareness training will strengthen your defences, further secure your organisation and help to mitigate your risk of attack.
