What is the Difference Between Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials PLUS?
Cyber Essentials certification provides a self-assessment option to assess adherence to the Cyber Essentials requirements that offer protection against common attacks.
A qualified assessor verifies self-assessment information for companies seeking a Cyber Essentials certification. A free self-assessment questionnaire is also available to assist organisations to self-assess their cyber security posture in advance of the formal self-assessment.
Cyber Essentials Plus has the same approach and protection requirements as Cyber Essentials. Cyber Essentials Plus certification, however, also involves an independent on site assessment of your security controls, internal and external vulnerability and patch scans.
It is therefore more highly regarded certification.
