We will assist you by ensuring that your business stays secure and compliant by making sure you meet all the requirements for being certified.
Cyber Essentials include an assessment of your firewall and internet gateways. This is crucial because a well-configured firewall can deter beaches before they penetrate your network, while an internet gateway can block threats before they affect your website.
Checking your system setup and configuration is part of the certification process. The check will ensure that you remove unused software and services and default passwords from your system to reduce the number of vulnerabilities.
Your system should be restricted and accessible to trusted users, with each having a username and a secure password to enable them to log in. Use an administrator account only when installing trusted and known software. Also, passwords and other access should be deleted immediately after a staff member leaves your organisation.
Your system needs protection from malware that is designed to destroy it. Cyber Essentials ensure that you have antivirus products and keep them up-to-date to detect and prevent threats.
You must maintain your computer and software and fix any security vulnerabilities to ensure it runs smoothly. Software like antivirus and anti-malware need constant updates to provide adequate protection, so you should regularly check for updates.
Ensure anti-malware is installed on all your computer devices and regularly updated. It will guarantee protection against malicious software.
Email security should be in place. Ensure that your gateway is configured to block harmful files sent by email.
Before you take the assessment, you should ensure that your software is up-to-date with the right security protection.
Patch and test all operating systems and software.
Everyone using your system must have a secure password and change them regularly. Multi-factor authentication should be enabled for systems with high-level controls.
