What is Cyber Essentials
The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed by Government and industry to fulfil two functions. It provides a clear statement of the core controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats, within the context of the Government’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security. And through the Assurance Framework, it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these necessary precautions. Cyber Essentials provides a sound foundation of basic hygiene measures that all types of organisations can implement and potentially build on. The government believes that implementing these steps can significantly reduce an organisation's vulnerability. However, it does not offer a silver bullet to remove all cyber security risk; for example, it is not designed to address more advanced, targeted attacks and hence organisations facing these threats will need to implement additional measures as part of their security strategy. What Cyber Essentials does do is define a focused set of controls which will provide cost effective, basic cyber security for organisations of all size
Cyber Essentials Standard
The organisation defines the scope, which is made up of the systems it believes are at risk from Internet-based threats; this includes network boundaries, location and management controls.
The organisation checks it is compliant with the requirements by responding to the Cyber Essentials questionnaire that covers the requirements for necessary technical protection from cyber attacks. Confirming it is compliant; the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) signs the questionnaire attesting its accuracy. Wolfberry then reviews the submission and, if appropriate, certification.
Certification at this level should be seen as a snapshot of the organisation or system at the time of assessment. It does not provide assurances that the controls will continue to be compliant.
Cyber Essentials Plus
Having completed Cyber Essentials standard, which is a prerequisite to Cyber Essentials Plus, an organisation is now ready to undergo a more thorough assessment from Wolfberry. This time the assessment is based on an internal and external vulnerability scan of the system(s) in scope. Once again this directly tests that the individual controls have been implemented correctly or recreates various attack scenarios to determine whether a compromise with commodity capabilities can be achieved.
Certification at this level should again be seen as a snapshot of the organisation or system at the time of assessment. It does not provide assurances that the controls will continue to be implemented correctly.
The IASME standard was developed over several years during a Technology Strategy Board funded project to create an achievable cyber security standard for small companies. The international standard, ISO27001, is comprehensive but extremely challenging for a small company to achieve and maintain. The IASME standard is written along the same lines as the ISO27001 but specifically for small companies. The gold standard of IASME demonstrates baseline compliance with the international standard
The IASME standard, at a realistic cost, allows the SMEs in a supply chain to demonstrate their level of cyber security and that they are able to properly protect their customer’s information.
Available either as a self assessment or assessment by an independent auditor, IASME is a realistic and affordable way for SMEs to prove that they are following best practice.
