Until now there has been no single way which allows organisations to demonstrate that they are taking precautions against basic internet threats seriously.Cyber Essentials encourages businesses to implement controls which protect against attacks using freely available tools and techniques. Organisations that demonstrate that they have adequately implemented the precautions will be able to display the Cyber Essentials Badge.

All organisations are encouraged to implement Cyber Essentials as part of a wider Information Risk Management approach, as recommended in the 10 Steps to Cyber Security.
