What our full Cyber Essentials Certification plan looks like

To make our Cyber Essentials Certification package transparent and prevent you from being tied into any high-cost work, we follow a simple 3 step plan.

Step 1

We come to your office and assess your current security solutions and create a report detailing any steps that are necessary to get you Cyber Essentials certified.

Once complete we will discuss any work which is required to become Cyber Essentials compliant.

£500 + VAT fixed fee

Step 2

Using our report, we make remedial changes to your security policies, servers, network, and firewall.

If our report doesn't list any hardware upgrades, this will see you business completing the Cyber Essentials process and becoming certified.

£1,000 + VAT fixed fee

Step 3

If your existing network infrastructure isn't able to meet the Cyber Essentials criteria, we will document this in our initial report.

Sometimes upgrading your firewall or security products will be enough to meet their criteria, while with some networks it may involve replacing PCs and other devices.

Cost depends on your setup

No commitment. If after Step 1 you decide that it's not cost-effective to pursue the certification, you're free to stop the process.

Network infrastructure review. If your business requires Step 3, we will go over all the options with you to ensure you're getting value for money and the right solutions for your business.

No upsell. Since we don't have salespeople and we're not driven by commission, we'll only offer you the security services we think you need to become certified.

In fact, most of the time Cyber Essentials Certifications can happen with just a simple report and a few changes to your network. That means zero additional hardware costs.
