Why Does My Business Need Cyber Essentials Certification?

Cyber Essentials was launched in 2014, by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

The goal of the Cyber Essentials scheme is to provide businesses with an assurance that suppliers, vendors, and other partners they work with, have adequate security controls in place to prevent data breaches.

Now in 2021, most organisations already have Cyber Essentials Certification. If you don’t, you’re in the minority. Your business might also be suffering as a result.


How much does Cyber Essentials cost?

With 32% of businesses experiencing a cyber security breach in the last year*, the time is now to invest in Cyber Essentials certification.

The average cost of a data breach is in the £1000’s. With Defensity, you can protect your business from as little as the cost of a weekly cup of coffee – ensuring return on investment and justifying your Cyber Essentials cost.

    Cyber Essentials is Vital for Modern Business Longevity

    In the age of GDPR and ever-increasing cyber security threats, it pays to take cyber security seriously. The risk to business relationships proves too great and may restrict business growth and development.


    When tendering contracts, neither government agencies or UK businesses will entertain bids from organisations without NCSC Cyber Essentials Certification. Doing so can put their credibility at risk.


    With Defensity, you can achieve Cyber Essentials Certification quickly and immediately improve your competitiveness and the credibility of your organisation.
