If you’ve completed your Cyber Essentials Compliance accreditation within the last three months and are looking for a step-up, Cyber Essentials Plus could be for you. A one year accreditation reviewed annually, Cyber Essentials Plus is an in-depth audit of your IT infrastructure. It takes the form of ‘Pen Testing’ on your internal and external infrastructures to check their security, configuration, and accessibility. Pen Testing identifies any existing vulnerabilities, ensuring that there are no weaknesses that could potentially be exploited by a cyber attack.

What is a Pen Test?

A Pen (also known as Penetration) test is the simulation of a cyberattack by an authorised security professional. In doing so, it pre-emptively identifies security vulnerabilities that could be used to exploit weaknesses. Testing is often carried out on servers, workstations, Firewalls, Switches, Routers, Physical and virtual Networks, Wireless Networks and Applications, highlighting unique vulnerabilities in each.

Cyber Essentials Plus Pen Testing?

After completing the pen testing, your assessor will review the findings for both internal and external systems. 

It’s likely that your business will fail the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation if any fundamental issues are identified. You’ll be advised of each failing and given the opportunity to rectify any problems before reapplying. 

In the case of minor issues, you may be given the opportunity to resolve them at the time of your assessment. Your assessor will then re-examine your implementation before sending it to a final board to modify the results. 

Given the technical expertise required to identify and rectify issues before the date of your assessment, it’s recommended that you engage with accredited IT companies to guide you through the assessment process. 

Why do I need a Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation?

Having Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation is an excellent indicator to potential clients that security is at the forefront of your business. It shows that you employ best practices and operate at a high level of cybersecurity – giving you the edge in an increasingly competitive marketplace where customers value the safety of their data.
