Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a UK government backed accreditation

Do you want to ensure your company remains secure?

Do you demonstrate your commitment to security to your clients? Demonstrate compliance with Article 32 of the GDPR? Do you implement and operate basic, yet critical, best practises in your business? Cyber Essentials is a UK government backed accreditation that focuses on the five most important technical security controls. These controls were identified by the government as those, if they had been in place, would have stopped the majority of the successful cyber-attacks over the last few years. Cyber Essentials helps you to guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate your commitment to security.

Cyber Essentials

64 leading questions help you to ensure and demonstrate compliance with best practises across five key cyber security areas. First Stop IT offers a DIY assessment process and a guided assessment option including 2 hours of telephone consultancy to help you with your compliance. If you require additional assistance, we can arrange for one of our consultants to visit your premises to guide you through the process.

“I have worked on a number of clients’ projects with Tai and First Stop IT. I have always found Tai to be a talented IT system designer who listens to the business needs of his clients to ensure that the final solution fully meets their requirements.

He has in depth knowledge of server & desktop hardware, Microsoft software, and range of security, backup, and cloud services. Tai is able to easily communicate and explain these services and features to others who do not have technical background.

With the backing of an excellent team of engineers at First Stop IT, I found their service to be fast and professional with great on-going support.”
