Cyber Essentials – Why Your Business Should Care?

Gaining Cyber Essentials certification and accreditation for your business reassures your customers (and suppliers) that you take cybersecurity seriously.

Furthermore, accreditation results in your website being listed on the National Cyber Security Agency’s Cyber Essentials Directory. Your increased cybersecurity awareness and protection can become a key benefit for doing business with you.

What Is Cyber Essentials & Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials is an online self-assessment checklist that provides businesses with protective measures against a wide array of common cybersecurity related issues. The Cyber Essentials route is designed to be bureaucratically lightweight with minimal invasive compliance checks.

Cyber Essentials Plus is similar to Cyber Essentials, but the verification is different. It requires independent third-party verification from a Certification Body associated with the National Cyber Security Agency. These checks will verify whether your IT infrastructure is “suitably secure”. Cyber Essentials Plus balances self-assessment with external verification.

What Is ISO27001?

ISO27001 is an information security standard – part of the wider ISO27000 family of standards. Its full name is ISO27001:2013 which was published by International Organization of Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) IN 2013.

ISO27001 outlines a management framework that brings together information security protocols under a singular management framework and requirements outline.

If you meet the standardised requirements, your company can be ‘accredited’ by a certification body; and after being audited, your organisation will be approved as ISO27001 accredited and certified.

How Can MKLINK Help My Company?

Ever asked the question: How Compliant is My Company? Well, MKLINK can fully assess your current level of compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We can provide fully accredited GDPR practitioners and Data Protection Officers to analyse the current level of compliance preparedness within your organisation.

Our team will audit your business on-site and this assessment won’t usually take more than a single business workday. Once we have completed the audit, we will analyse the full organisation assessment and identify where you currently comply and where you do not currently comply with the law. We will provide a full set of actionable checklist tools along with a full proposal outlining our approach to delivering full GDPR compliance.

We Can Help With Training and Software Solutions

Furthermore, our training solutions – either online, classroom based or tailored to your own unique needs – can help improve the cultural dynamics within your organisation. We can help you embed good cybersecurity and data protection hygiene values within your workforce.
