Cyber Essentials was launched in June 2014 as part of the UK Government's National Cyber Security Strategy. The Cyber Essentials scheme sets a baseline for UK cyber security and provides an independent assessment of the essential security controls that organisations need to have in place to mitigate risks from the most common forms of internet-borne threats.

The UK Government requires IT suppliers to be Cyber Essential certified when bidding for government contracts that involve handling sensitive and personal information, while displaying the Cyber Essentials badge demonstrates to all customers that companies have taken steps to be fundamentally cyber safe.

CREST was engaged by CESG, the information security arm of GCHQ, to develop the assessment framework that supports the Government's Cyber Essentials scheme. In this webinar, Ian Glover will discuss why we need Cyber Essentials; who it is for, what it is (and what it isn’t); and how it works. He will also review how it has been received by industry more than a year since its launch and what the future holds for the scheme.
