30 Apr Cyber Essentials
We are now assisting our customers to gain the government backed accreditation for Cyber Essentials.
This helps protect your organisation against cyber-attacks and the most common cyber threats. It also demonstrates your commitment to Cyber Security to your customers.
It can help you to:
- Reassure customers that you are working to secure your IT against cyber attacks
- Attract new business with the promise that you have cyber security measures in place
- Have a clear picture of your organisation’s cyber security level
- Comply with Government contracts requiring Cyber Essentials certification
We work with an approved accreditation agency called Xyone and will be offering an online Webinar regarding Cyber Essentials on Thursday 2nd May at 10am.
You can find out more about it on the link above.
There are two levels of Cyber Essentials accreditation available:
Cyber Essentials: This is completed internally with Apex Computing’s help, in the form of a self-answer questionnaire which is then accredited by Xyone.
Xyone charge £300+VAT for the accreditation
Cyber Essentials Plus: This has the same criteria as Essentials, but it is independently audited onsite by a team of specialists from Xyone.
Depending on the size of your organisation Xyone charge £1500+
In addition to Xyone’s charge, there will be a support charge from Apex Computing to help get your organisation ready for the accreditation. This may include making changes to your systems and processes to bring them in line with compliance for the accreditation.
Cost of support from Apex Computing for Cyber Essentials: £955+VAT
This cost is for our support in preparing your systems for the Cyber Essentials Questionnaire and making you compliant. Any minor changes that are required to make your company compliant for Cyber Essentials would be completed as part of this process.
Cost of support from Apex Computing for Cyber Essentials Plus: £1365+VAT
This cost is for our support in preparing your systems for the Cyber Essentials Plus external Audit and making you compliant. Any minor changes are required to make your company compliant for Cyber Essentials Plus we would completed as part of this process. We would also have an engineer onsite to assist on the day the examiners visit to carry out the audit.
For either accreditation, any larger compliance requirements would be quoted for separately and may incur additional costs.
