Cyber Essentials Plus.
Certification from just £200 pm
Cyber-attacks are becoming a significant threat to businesses. Organisations need to focus on cybersecurity to protect assets, data, and the company from extortion. They also need to demonstrate this to their customers and partners. Cyber Essentials Basic and Cyber Essentials plus are nationally recognised badges that demonstrate a basic level of cyber security resilience.
What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme that will help your business protect itself from common online threats. Common online threats account for 80% of cyber-attacks, and the scheme focuses on five precautionary controls that protect against them.
The five controls of Cyber Essentials:
- Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
- Secure configuration
- Access control
- Malware protection
- Patch management
The 5 tests of Cyber Essentials plus
An external vulnerability scan will be taken on external-facing IP addresses to the organisation. All TCP and UDP ports will be scanned to look for vulnerabilities within this test.
An authenticated internal vulnerability scan will be conducted on a sample set of systems to review for vulnerabilities. This scan will review patch management highlighting vulnerabilities across systems. Any vulnerabilities identified with a patch that has been released for more than 14 days will result in a failure of this test.
A review of end-user devices malware protection will be conducted to ensure that all antivirus is up to date and active. This also applies to mobile and tablet devices, where phones may be checked for code signing to ensure devices aren’t jailbroken or rooted.
A set of emails will be sent to a sample set of end-user devices containing either malicious attachments or malicious hyperlinks to test the efficacy of email protection. This test must be undertaken on a standard non-administrative account.
Each of the end-user devices within the sample set will be required to navigate via each web browser to a website hosted by OmniCyber Security. This website will contain a set of specially crafted virus test files to validate the functionality of malware protection on the web browsers in scope. The malware attached won’t affect the organisation, however, it will flag to the assessor if the antimalware protection measures are sufficient to meet the Cyber Essentials standard.
