UPDATE: The NCSC has announced that IASME will take full responsibility for Cyber Essentials from 1 April 2020. IRM will operate as an Accreditation Body until the end of March 2020. You can read more here.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government-backed certification scheme designed to help organisations protect themselves from the most common internet-based threats.

We can recommend a selection of organisations who have been certification bodies for Cyber Essentials under IRM’s accreditation scheme. Certification bodies are the suppliers you work with to assess whether your organisation complies with Cyber Essentials guidelines.

The Cyber Essentials scheme provides guidance to help organisations of all sizes to measure their defences against common forms of cyber-attacks. Selected by industry experts, the technical controls within the scheme reflect those covered in well-established standards. Cyber Essentials offers a sound foundation of basic hygiene measures that all types of organisations can implement and potentially build upon.

Below is a list of our approved Certification Bodies who can take you through the process of certification.
