IASME Chosen to be the Sole Cyber Essentials Scheme Partner from April 2020

The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has announced that IASME have been chosen as the sole accreditation body for the UK’s Cyber Essentials (including CE+) scheme for at least the next five years. Read more about on this announcement.

CST recognise that not everyone has the necessary resources to address the business-critical issue of cyber security.

What is Cyber Essentials?

The scheme provides a set of five controls that organisations can implement to achieve a baseline of cyber security, against which they can achieve certification in order to prove their compliance. Addressing these five topics and controls eliminate up to 80% of typical cyber threats.

All of the five requirements are recommended as part of the “SANS Top 20” controls, and the ISO27001 standard:

  1. Secure configuration
  2. Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
  3. Access control & admin privilege management
  4. Patch management
  5. Malware protection
