Cyber Essentials Certification

Reduce the risk of cyber threats by 80%!

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials (CE) is a government-backed cyber security certification scheme that sets out a baseline of cyber security suitable for all organisations. (

Why do you need Cyber Essentials?

Cyber attacks cost organisations like yours thousands of pounds and cause lengthy periods of disruption. Do you have a plan for what you would do if your customer database was stolen, your website was forced offline, or you couldn’t access your email or business-critical data?

Cyber criminals don’t just attack banks and large companies – they target any organisation which isn’t properly protected, even small businesses – like yours.

Having Cyber Essentials, you can:

  • reduce the risk of cyber threats by up to 80%
  • maintain business reputation
  • save on potential IT costs
  • focus on your core business objectives
  • bid for UK government contracts
  • gain competitive advantage

What’s the process of getting certified?

The entire process couldn’t be simpler:

  1. An Alliance Systems engineer will complete a full Cyber Essentials suitability audit.
  2. The outcome of the audit will be fully documented and presented as a report.
  3. The report will outline if any corrections to your infrastructure are required to be certified.
  4. Once all corrections have been made, we will assist you to apply for certification.

Once accreditation is confirmed, Cyber Essentials Plus can be investigated if required.
