Cyber Essentials Badge logo

The Cyber Essentials Scheme [1] is a UK Government scheme that covers basic information management, security policy and network security. There are five main areas covered in Cyber Essentials; Internet firewalls and gateways, Secure configuration, Access Control, Malware protection and Patch management. These five are considered the areas at highest risk of cyber-attack based on industry analysis. Cyber Essentials is mandatory for all Central Government contracts advertised from 1 October 2014 onwards that feature personal information and/or provision of IT products and services [2]. Cyber Essentials is also mandatory for all similar UK MOD contracts advertised from 1st January 2016 [3]. It is expected that the NHS and other public sector bodies will follow suit over time.

The IASME [4] is a standard developed by a Technology Strategy Board project in order to create a realistic and achievable security standard for small and medium companies. IASME is based on ISO 27001 (The international gold standard for large enterprises) and covers much of the same areas such as Risk management, Security policy, Asset management, Access controls, Employee screening, Incident management, Business continuity, Regulatory compliance as well as Technical security (networks and computers).
