Cyber Essentials

Taking a proactive approach to protecting your business.

Though they often sound complex and complicated, cyber-attacks come in several different shapes and sizes but more often than not they are very basic and carried out by relatively unskilled individuals.

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a world-leading, cost-effective, and government-backed assurance mechanism that helps you to identify, and protect your business against a whole range of cyber attacks so you can demonstrate to customers and other stakeholders that the most important basic cyber security controls have been implemented.

CETSAT is an Accredited Cyber Essentials (ACE) Practitioner for the Cyber Essentials scheme and we take this role and responsibility very seriously. We ourselves are Cyber Essentials certified, after commissioning a third party to fully scrutinise and audit our own systems to ensure that we lead by example in working safely and securely at all times. We use our knowledge and accreditations to empower clients to consider a similar approach. Supporting each and every one of them through the certification journey.

We can support you in taking
the first steps to best practice…

The Cyber Essentials scheme includes an annual assessment which provides businesses with clarity on good cyber security practice. By focusing on basic cyber hygiene, your company will be better protected from the most common and often careless cyber threats. 

Cyber Essentials aims to reduce common, unsophisticated threats by 80%.


We will help you throughout the entirety of the Cyber Essentials programme to make sure you are clued up and ready for the test. Whilst we always aim for a high pass rate, failing your Cyber Essentials isn’t always a bad thing. Like taking your car for an MOT, some failures can provide key insights and learnings. Identifying areas for improvement and potential business vulnerabilities that we can work with you to resolve.

Cyber Essentials reassures your colleagues as well as your customers that you are taking a proactive approach to protecting your business assets, and theirs!

Having robust cyber secure measures in place for business can also attract new business with the promise that you are protected from as many online threats as possible.

Cyber Essentials is mandatory for all government contracts which involve handling personal information and when providing certain ICT products and services.
