Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme aimed at fortifying organisations against common cyber threats. By adopting a set of fundamental security controls, businesses can significantly reduce the risk of falling victim to cyberattacks.

Protection Against Common Threats:

Cyber Essentials focuses on mitigating prevalent cyber threats by establishing a baseline of security measures. This includes securing internet connections, controlling access to data, and ensuring software is up to date.
