Step 2: Complete self-assessment questionnaire

The next step to becoming Cyber Essentials certified is completion of the self-assessment questionnaire. You can download a sample of the questionnaire here.

The purpose of the questionnaire is to establish whether your organisation has the necessary measures in place to defend itself against the most common forms of cyber attack.

We suggest that you download the sample questionnaire to see what information your organisation will need to provide during the certification process.

Step 3: become Cyber Essentials certified

Once you complete and submit the self-assessment questionnaire electronically through the members’ area, our Cyber Essentials team will review your application.

They will be on hand to support you throughout the application process and liaise directly with you regarding any gaps or additional information required.

Once your application has been approved by our team, it will be submitted to the awarding body who will issue your certification, confirming that you are Cyber Essentials certified.
