Description

We recommend this solution for organisations that are confident they have the skills to achieve Cyber Essentials Plus certification, but are unsure of their scope and do not fully understand the five controls (secure configuration, boundary firewalls, access controls, patch management and malware protection).

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a world-leading, cost-effective assurance mechanism for companies of all sizes to demonstrate that the most important cyber security controls have been implemented.

Correctly implemented cyber security has the additional advantage of driving business efficiency throughout the organisation, saving money and improving productivity.


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

Cyber Essentials Plus - Do It Yourself

With this service you can conduct the entire certification process using our secure portal – a user-friendly, no-fuss solution to applying for Cyber Essentials Plus certification. This unique online service enables companies to apply for Cyber Essentials Plus certification following a convenient ‘do it yourself’ approach.

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.

Scans & on-site assessment

Your bundle will also include the following:

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

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 on-site assessment, which will include the internal vulnerability scan.
  • You schedule your external vulnerability scan through the portal.
  • We will conduct the on-site assessment and perform the necessary internal scan on a sample of your Internet-facing devices.
  • We will provide you with the results of the internal scan and on-site assessment. If there are nonconformities, we will provide detailed feedback to help you understand how to close these gaps and achieve certification.
  • Subject to a positive outcome, we issue your Cyber Essentials Plus 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, we recommend that you purchase our Cyber Essentials Plus Get A Lot Of Help package, as this 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.

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.

Prerequisites & conditions

Prerequisites

The package price is based on on-site testing at one location, of one type of user account, on up to eight workstation builds and up to five mobile devices (smartphones and tablets*). The duration and the number of locations that must be included in the internal testing depend on the number of user device builds, including BYOD, within the scope of the certification.

*Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet is treated as a workstation.

The number of locations to be tested depends on whether all the different build can be tested in one location. A build can 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 software suites installed.

Examples of relevant software are listed below:

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

If more than one browser or Office suite is used, each variant needs to be tested. If they are installed on the same build, this is acceptable.


Pre-test requirements

  • All user device builds to be tested, including mobile and BYOD, must be available 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 (https://ces.itgovernance.co.uk).
  • 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 details of the 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.

Additional conditions and expenses

The on-site assessment is subject to additional travel expenses, which will be charged in arrears.

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.

You will receive the documentation toolkit within 48 hours of your purchase and we’ll contact you at the same time to schedule your Live Online consultancy. Your Live Online consultancy can be split over multiple sessions but any unused time will not be credited back.

If your business is located outside mainland UK (England, Scotland and Wales), additional expenses will be charged to accommodate our consultant’s travel for the on-site assessment.
