Breaking down the crucial controls that form part of the assessment and preparing your business for the test

Let us guide you through the Cyber Essentials certification via our simple ‘self-help’ module.
We break down the crucial controls that form part of the assessment and prepare your organisation for the test.

Cyber Essentials was developed in collaboration with IASME and The Friendly Nerd with the main aim of ensuring that organisations wishing to apply for the certification were fully compliant with the framework the scheme expects.

As a government-backed scheme, Cyber Essentials certification is mandatory when working with government clients. By gaining this accreditation, your organisation sends a clear statement that actions and controls are in place to mitigate the dangers of cyber threats.

Our module goes in-depth on the five technical controls that make up Cyber Essentials. To be awarded the certification, organisations must comply with all five. These technical controls are:

  • Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
  • Secure configurations
  • Access Control
  • Malware Protection
  • Patch Management
  • Before starting the module, you will fill in a form which will be sent to IASME, one of the four Cyber Essentials accreditation bodies, recommending you to be put forward for the accreditation if your score is high enough.

    Like all Bob’s Business modules, you will be tested on the requirements of the certification. ‘Who Wants to Learn Cyber Essentials’, the in-game quiz show, will present you with the question to adequately prepare you for gaining the Cyber Essentials.
