You have landed on this page because you employ more than 250 people and you either wish to apply for Cyber Essentials Certification or you have been instructed by your customer to meet the requirements prior to being awarded a contract.
As a large organisation your greatest challenge will be scoping your boundary. You can be certified as individual departments/work units/countries if you have a physical boundary to your larger organisations infrastructure. As an easy rule of thumb if the larger infrastructure is infected by ransomware such as Cryptolocker would it infect your work units system. If it would you will need to either add hardware or re-define your scope.
To obtain your certificate you are required to provide evidence, to an accredited certification body, that you meet the Cyber Essentials Requirements. We have made this easy for you by providing a standard questionnaire that asks you the relevant questions, you’ll need to attach some evidence so we’ve provided some guidance notes for you to follow. On completing the questionnaire to the satisfaction of your chosen certification body you will be awarded your Cyber Essentials Certificate.
