We’re delighted to announce that our Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation has been renewed for another year. 

Originally obtained in 2019, Net Primates know how vital it is for businesses to demonstrate responsible cyber security and understand the risks of cybercrime. Whilst three years doesn’t seem like a long time, cybercrime has progressed at pace. As such, requirements for accreditation have been overhauled and are now harder and more comprehensive. 

We’d encourage all businesses to consider becoming Cyber Essentials accredited. Cyber security is especially vital now that many businesses are offering hybrid-working arrangements.  

Why should you get Cyber Essentials? 

The National Cyber Security Centre’s website gives details on their scheme and why it’s useful to help guard your business against cyberattack. As an accredited business you’ll also be demonstrating your cyber security commitment to customers. 

  • Certified cyber security 
  • Reassure customers that you are working to secure your IT against cyber attack 
  • Attract new business with the promise you have cyber security measures in place 
  • You have a clear picture of your organisation’s cyber security level 
  • Some Government contracts require Cyber Essentials certification 

Why not check out the Cyber Essentials readiness toolkit. Your responses to the questions in the toolkit helps create a personal action plan to help you move towards meeting the Cyber Essentials requirements. The action plan includes links to specific guidance on how to meet the requirements.
