Product overview

Certification to Cyber Essentials Plus requires an organisation to undergo an on-site assessment to check whether its devices comply with the control requirements.

This involves a technical consultant visiting your office to conduct tests (a review against a standard golden image build) against a representative sample of desktops and any corporate tablets and similar mobile devices that you use.

This package provides one extra day of on-site testing, of one type of user account, on up to ten device builds.

The prerequisites for testing

The duration and number of locations that must be included in the internal testing depend on the number of builds of user devices (including BYOD) that are within the scope of the certification.

The number of locations to be tested depends on whether all the different builds can be tested in one location. It is permissible to arrange a build to be delivered to a particular site for testing purposes, even if it is not normally deployed there, providing it accesses the Internet in its usual manner.

The number of builds is defined by the number of configurations of operating system and the suite of software installed.

Examples of relevant software include:

  • Oracle Java
  • Adobe Acrobat
  • Microsoft Office
  • Adobe Flash
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Opera
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer
  • Antivirus solution

If more than one browser is used, each variant will be in scope for testing. For further information, please read our FAQ.
