Unearth the significance of the Cyber Essentials certification and its role as your business's first line of defence in the increasingly perilous digital landscape.

Helping You Navigate Your Digital Terrain Safely.

The digital revolution has brought significant benefits, but it has also given rise to unprecedented cyber threats. To help businesses combat these evolving threats, the UK government introduced the Cyber Essentials scheme. As a trusted Managed Security Services Provider, Stygian Cyber Security is here to illuminate how Cyber Essentials acts as your first line of defence in this digital battleground.

Cyber Essentials: Your Defensive Cornerstone

Cyber Essentials is a government-endorsed certification scheme that sets out five key controls to protect against the most common internet-based threats (source). They include secure configuration, boundary firewalls and gateways, access control, patch management, and malware protection. The scheme is designed to be a baseline level of security that is affordable and achievable for all businesses.

At Stygian Cyber Security, we assist businesses to implement these controls effectively and earn their certification, bolstering their cyber resilience and providing reassurance to their clients and stakeholders.

Why Cyber Essentials?

In today’s hyper-connected world, cybersecurity is no longer optional. It’s a necessity. Certification offers businesses a roadmap for basic cyber hygiene and helps prevent the vast majority of cyber attacks (source).

Moreover, it is often a requirement for government contracts involving handling sensitive and personal information. At Stygian Cyber Security, we can help streamline your journey to achieving and maintaining this essential certification.
