Cyber Essentials and ISO 27001:2013

Launched by the Department for Business in 2014, Cyber Essentials is a UK wide scheme that encourages businesses to adopt good IT security. Created in response to the growing number of cyber attacks on UK businesses, the Cyber Essentials scheme helps organisations of all sizes to protect themselves against potential cyber crime.

ISO 27001:2013 is the international standard describing best practice for an information security management system. ISO 27001 accredited certification demonstrates businesses are following best practice.

Why become Cyber Essentials certified?

The Cyber Essentials scheme is for all organisations large and small, with the process of certification designed to be light weight and easily manageable, while at the same time providing a respected certified standard in cyber security.

Cyber Essentials protects your business by preventing up to 80% of cyber threats, and is now compulsory for many government contracts. Cyber Essentials certification could also help to reduce your business insurance premiums.

Two methods for Cyber Essentials compliance

LMS Group has partnered with information security specialist ThinkMarble, an approved assessor and certification body for Cyber Essentials. The process we use enables us to help your business adopt and be compliant with Cyber Essentials in a simple, straightforward, efficient and cost-effective way.

Method 1) Self Assessment:
Complete the online form which our specialist compliance team assess. After resolving any issues, certification is then issued.

Method 2) Guided Self Assessment:

As above, except one of our compliance team will visit your premises to guide you through the form and approval process.

Cyber Essentials assessments and audits

Once fully Cyber Essentials certified you may wish to move forward to the higher level of Cyber Essentials Plus.

We would then arrange for one of our expert assessors to visit your organisation to perform various checks and tests as part of a detailed technical audit.  Once these tests have been completed and any issues have been rectified, our assessor will issue the Cyber Essentials Plus Certification.
