The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed by the UK Government and industry to fulfil two functions.
- It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats (Implementation) and
- through the Assurance Framework it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions (Certification).
