You have landed on this page because you are a government department and you are looking at implementing Cyber Essentials for your department.
As a government department your greatest challenge will be scoping your boundary. You can be certified as individual departments if you have a physical boundary to your larger departments infrastructure. As an easy rule of thumb if the larger infrastructure is infected by ransomware such as Cryptolocker would it infect your departments 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.
