What is Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials Plus is a certification program from the UK government to help organizations guard against online threats. It builds on the basic Cyber Essentials standard by requiring extra verification that security controls are working right, adding penetration testing to validate technical controls. The “Plus” takes certification to the next level by including a third-party audit to provide further assurance of your company’s cybersecurity posture. 

The key controls under Cyber Essentials Plus that an auditor will check include:

  • Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
  • Secure system configuration
  • Access control
  • Malware protection
  • Patch management

The goal with these controls is to validate that your cybersecurity policies aren’t just theoretical – they are actively blocking real-world threats.
