The Cyber Essentials scheme is a set of baseline technical controls produced by the UK Government and industry to help organisations, large and small, public and private, improve their defences and publicly demonstrate their commitment to cybersecurity.
The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common internet-based attacks that use widely available tools and that need very little skill for the attacker to use.
The scheme helps organisations to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data stored on devices that connect to the internet.
