CYBER ESSENTIALS

Cyber Essentials is a scheme designed by the Government, which certifies that businesses are fully compliant with GDPR laws.  The certification will reassure your current and prospective clients that you have the necessary measures in place to protect your business against potential cyber-attack threats.  

To gain certification Cyber Essentials requires your organisation to have five technical controls in place.  We will work with you to ensure the correct processes are in place for each these to help you to gain Cyber Essentials Certification. This will be partially achieved through a pre-questionnaire as well as gap analysis. We will then be able to score your current state and propose a plan to rectify any issues, with work being conducted by your own team or by one of the experts here at Everon.

CYBER ESSENTIALS AND GDPR

GDPR, which came into effect on May 25, 2018, is intended to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (post Brexit this will still include the UK). It is the most important change in data privacy and security regulation in 20 years.

Some of its key points are:

Increased fines – Fines can be up to 4% of global turnover or €20M, whichever is higher.

Opt-in consent – Users must give clear unambiguous consent for their data to be collected and processed. And you must have proof of how, why and when the consent was given.

Breach notification – The ICO must be informed within 72 hours of any data loss and users informed “as soon as possible”.

The Cyber Essentials scheme offers a big step towards being compliant with GDPR and most likely will put you ahead of competitors, many of whom will be dragging their heels.
