CYBER ESSENTIALS BENEFITS
In addition to demonstrating that your organisation has good basic it security hygiene measures in place, Cyber Essentials will provide you with many more advantages:
Maximise Business Opportunities
Cyber Essentials accreditation has been a prerequisite to UK Government contract tenders since the beginning of 2016. Some large companies are now stating that it will become one of their supply chain prerequisites in the future.
Peace of Mind
Displaying the Cyber Essentials badge demonstrates to key internal and external stakeholders that you have robust information security measures in place and comply with a Government recognised standard.
EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Readiness
GDPR comes into force in May 2018 and impacts all organisations that hold the personal data of EU citizens. Cyber Essentials compliance will help on your journey to becoming GDPR ready.
Automatic Cyber Insurance Cover
You’ll receive automatic cyber insurance at the time you receive Cyber Essentials certification if your company is domiciled in the UK, you certify your whole company, and have a turnover of under £20m. Full details can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01905 21681.
Insurance agencies look favourably on SME Cyber Essentials accreditation, which can result in improved risk assessments and reduced premiums.
