Cyber Essentials is an accreditation scheme that helps you to demonstrate that you have taken steps to guard against the most common cyber threats and to show that you are committed to keeping your systems secure.
If you are a new supplier to the States of Jersey, you will need to be Cyber Essentials (or evidence of a higher standard) within 12 months of signing a contract or if you are an existing suppler you will need to be certified before the end of 2019.
To get Cyber Essentials certification you will need to complete a questionnaire detailing the step you have taken to address online security in your business and then submit the questionnaire to an accredited assessor.
This workshop will explain what an assessor is looking for as evidence so that you can complete the assessment process as efficiently and effectively as possible.
