The process is simple and is completed in four easy steps.

Firstly, to get started our expert team will guide you through the process by sending documentation which you can use to prepare yourself for the online assessment.

Secondly, you’ll log on to an online portal where you’ll be asked to fill in your assessment. This isn’t meant to be daunting, and if you need any advice or help are experts are on hand to guide you through.

Thirdly, one of our experts will come and visit your office to complete an audit of your self-assessment questionnaire. Whilst they’re there they will conduct a vulnerability scan of your network and externally facing services.

Finally, your assessment will be looked at and marked. If you pass, you will be officially Cyber Essentials Plus Accredited and you can publish a badge on your website showing clients and suppliers you take cyber security seriously.

If you fail the assessment, our experts will talk you through the next steps.
