Cyber Essentials

It’s a framework that businesses can use to develop and maintain their protection against cyber threats.

There are two versions, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.

Essentials provides 5 basic controls that every small business can use, and this will statistically prevent about 80% of attacks:

1) Firewalls
2) Software Patching
3) Anti-Malware
4) Access Controls
5) Secure Configuration

The Essentials certification process is a simple self-certification process.
Becoming compliant requires that each of the above 5 controls has been fully satisfied – that’s where Maxnett comes in.
We’ll can help you achieve each step through an orderly, manageable project that won’t break the bank.

Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections you need to put in place are the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out by one of our partners.

To complete Plus, you will need to have completed your Essentials certification. Your Plus certification must begin within 3 months of your Essentials certification date.

Strong Authentication (everywhere)

No, that doesn’t just mean long gibberish passwords.

It means at the very least, your people are authenticated by two separate ‘factors’ – this means when they login, they must have at least two unique things to prove they’re not one of the bad guys.
Typically this is a password, plus one other unique element such as a dynamic code sent to their smartphone, or something like a smartcard or a code from a token-generator keyfob.
We’re already used to such systems for online banking – it can be deployed across most of your existing critical systems.

It’s often called Multifactor Authentication (MFA) or Two-Factor Authentication (2FA).

If you know your business has systems that only require a password…then you know your IT Security isn’t quite up to snuff.
