What is Cyber Essentials Plus Certification?
Cyber Essentials is a UK Government scheme that aims to help businesses protect themselves from common cyber security threats.
However, a basic Cyber Essentials self-assessment will not verify the actual integrity of your security perimeter. For this, you’ll need Cyber Essentials Plus Certification.

Cyber Essentials Plus Certification Benefits
Why Do I Need Cyber Essentials Plus?
The purpose of the UK’s Cyber Essentials scheme is simple. Certification in the form of a self-assessment demonstrates to your consumers that you are security-aware. Fulfilling extra Cyber Essentials Plus requirements builds on this, by demonstrating that you have proven resilience to common cyber security threats.
How do I get Cyber Essentials Plus Certification?
To satisfy basic Cyber Essentials Plus requirements, you will first need to complete a basic Cyber Essentials self-assessment. Once you already have Cyber Essentials Certification, you may then apply for Cyber Essentials Plus.
When you apply for Cyber Essentials Plus here at Defensity, we will schedule a time to independently assess what cyber security controls you currently have in place. Typically, we aim to validate the presence of controls in five key areas:
External Vulnerability Assessments
Internal Patch Audits
Software and physical device firmware vendors regularly release patches for critical, product-specific security threats. During an internal patch audit, we will verify that you have up-to-date patches installed on all your critical business IT systems.
Malware Protection Audits
Malware and viruses can pose a critical threat to your business continuity. Worse, malware like ransomware can result in catastrophic data breaches. Our team at Defensity will, therefore, verify the integrity (and efficacy) of any anti-malware solution you are currently using.
Email Threat Assessments
Is the anti-malware solution you are currently using capable of automatically detecting malicious email attachments?
During email threat assessments, our team at Defensity will test to see whether malicious files can penetrate your email defenses. To do this, we will send test files to different email accounts associated with your organization.
