Since October 1st, 2014, Cyber Essentials has become a mandatory requirement for all central government contracts that involve handling personal information and providing certain ICT products and services. Even if your business is not a government supplier, it is highly recommended that you embark on the Cyber Essentials pathway to ensure that your business has implemented basic cyber security controls. By doing so, you can mitigate against common types of cyber-attacks, such as phishing and hacking.
According to the HM Government Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2021, 39% of businesses and 26% of charities reported experiencing cyber security breaches or attacks in the last year. Medium and large businesses, as well as high-income charities, are particularly vulnerable to these attacks.
Cyber-attacks on businesses of all sizes are becoming increasingly common, with data hacks, phishing attacks, successful ransomware incidents, and the accidental loss of valuable customer information regularly making headlines. Fortunately, many of these costly incidents can be prevented by taking simple steps and implementing basic cyber security controls.
