What's included in the Cyber Essentials – Get a Lot of Help package?

Cyber Essentials Certification

  • Up to seven hours of consultancy support to help you with your submission.
  • Your Cyber Essentials certificate.
  • Access to the IASME portal where you will submit your SAQ (self-assessment questionnaire).

Cyber Essentials Consultancy – 1 day

Cyber Essentials self-assessment questions can be difficult to understand if you do not have a technical IT background or you have a more complex company structure. This service provides a day of one-to-one consultancy support for the first year of your subscription. This additional support can be delivered remotely or in person at your business and is designed to help you understand the scheme’s requirements and how to implement the five controls, define your scope, and understand and complete the SAQ.

How the application process works:

  • Your Cyber Essentials package will be automatically fulfilled on your account on our IT Governance Cyber Security Portal (CS Portal).
  • We contact you to arrange a welcome call and delivery of your consultancy support.
  • We help set up your access to our CS Portal and your SAQ on the IASME portal.
  • We help you define your scope for certification and complete the IASME SAQ.
  • You confirm and submit your application.
  • Subject to a positive outcome, you receive your Cyber Essentials certificate.

Is this service right for you?

Our Get A Lot Of Help package will give you a better chance of achieving Cyber Essentials certification at the first attempt. It has been created for organisations with little or no experience implementing the Cyber Essentials scheme’s five controls, or those that need a lot of assistance completing the SAQ.

It is also suitable for larger organisations with complex organisational structures.
