Cyber Essentials Certification

It is not unusual to hear of cyber threats happening to companies on the news in this current climate, especially with so many now working from home due to the COVID crisis. However, did you know that charities are one of the most targeted sectors within the UK when it comes to cyber threats? UK charities hold funds, personal, financial and commercial data that makes them a significant target when it comes to cyber criminals and other unsavoury groups. That is the bad news – however, here is the good news! 
The IASME Consortium, the recognised partner for the Government backed Cyber Essentials certification scheme, is launching a week-long campaign in November aimed at encouraging registered charities to improve their resilience to online threats. 

The Cyber Essentials scheme assesses against the implementation of simple controls in five core technical areas. Its effectiveness means Cyber Essentials is already a pre-requisite for many government and private sector tenders.  The 5 technical controls are anti-malware, access control, patching, secure configuration and firewalls. These are the five key areas identified as those which, had controls been in place, would have prevented the majority of internet born attacks over recent years.

As a licensed certification body for the government backed Cyber Essentials scheme/IASME Governance scheme, we are proud to be offering a discount on both certifications to charities for the week 2nd to the 6th of November 2020.

Cyber Essentials

This scheme addresses the five core technical controls that have been proven to prevent 80% of internet born attacks. The Cyber Essentials certification also include automatic cyber liability insurance for any UK organisation that certifies their whole organisation and have less than £20m annual turnover (terms apply)
£225 + VAT

Cyber Essentials with IASME Governance

This certification includes the Cyber Essentials certification but also adds additional security safeguards, to help bolster organisations protection against cyber-attacks. The standard is specially formulated for SME organisations and brings in additional checks, including physical security, staff awareness, data backup and also includes a GDPR assessment.
£250 + VAT

Through this campaign, we are hoping to raise awareness to charities of the cyber threats they may face and how they can combat that through putting the right procedures in place for their organisations. To find out more contact us directly for more information.
