Cyber Essentials is a foundation level certification designed to provide a statement of the basic controls your organisation should have in place to mitigate the risk from common cyber threats. This is achieved through a self-assessment process carried out under the guidance of our cyber security experts. Upon completion of the questionnaire you will receive the certification, allowing you to display the official Cyber Essentials badge on your documents and website.

Once accredited you are required to resubmit your questionnaire on an annual basis with updated evidence which will be priced upon which package you choose. We will remind you four weeks before your certification is due so that you can review your questionnaire before resubmitting.

The process is fully set up online through a secured member access. With your login details, you can access the online questionnaire, save your progress and return to it later and validate each section before final submission. You are also supported throughout the self-assessment, either via the help buttons on the questionnaire or via the contact form.

Download sample 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.
