Cyber Essentials Certification is now available in Canada. Cyber Essentials is a cybersecurity standard that organizations can be assessed and certified against. It identifies the security controls that an organization must have in place within their IT systems in order to have confidence that they are addressing cybersecurity effectively and mitigating the risk from internet-based threats. Properly implemented, cybersecurity has the additional advantage of driving business efficiency throughout the organization, saving money and improving productivity. Cyber Essentials certification may also reduce your cyber liability insurance premiums. A Cyber Essentials basic or Cyber Essentials Plus badge will enhance your business’s reputation and open up new commercial opportunities by proving to your customers that you take the security of their information seriously and are taking the necessary steps to reduce cyber risks.
