Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed and industry supported scheme to guide businesses in protecting themselves against cyber threats. Certification against this scheme is increasingly required for any company bidding for government contracts and sometimes their supply chain too. In addition to this, other organisations are now starting to include Cyber Essentials certification as a requirement in their standard supplier contracts.
Sussex Chamber of Commerce is proud to be cyber essentials certified.
Cyber Essentials aims to help organisations implement basic levels of protection against cyber attack, demonstrating to their customers that they take cyber security seriously. The scheme is available at two levels:

Organisations that undertake Cyber Essentials are encouraged to recertify at least once a year and, where appropriate, progress their security.
