At Method IT, we take cyber security seriously. It’s why we’re ISO27001 certified and have Cyber Essentials Plus certification. Now, we’re able to help other businesses achieve a key cyber essentials accreditation as a Cyber Essentials Certification Body.

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed certification that helps businesses take control of their cybersecurity and protect themselves from the vast majority of common online threats. It is supported by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and administered through IASME. 

Method IT is one of less than 200 IT consultancies that have met IASME’s strict criteria to become a Certification Body able to undertake audits and certify businesses to Cyber Essentials Plus standard. As a result, we can streamline the accreditation process, evaluate and approve your company’s Cyber Essentials application, and guarantee that your business passes. 

Cyber Essentials was first launched in 2014, but it is becoming an increasingly important certification given the tendency for businesses to operate hybrid working environments with bigger attack footprints. Cyber Essentials proves your business has the minimum standard of cyber security provisions in place. It also opens the door to more public and private contracts, many of which now require Cyber Essentials certification in order to tender.

For the professional services sector (legal, accounting etc.), there is an even greater demand for companies to become certified. Regulatory authorities are putting increasing pressure on their members to address cybersecurity issues and take out added insurance. Cyber Essentials certification can help you comply with your body’s current and future demands, and remove the need to acquire additional insurance.

With the ever evolving threat of cyber-attacks, having a Cyber Essential’s certification will demonstrate your company’s dedication to cyber security and protecting the information of your clients and employees. Whilst your business may have an internal IT Support team, this unfortunately doesn’t guarantee any level of safeguarding – which is why Method IT works with you to reduce the cost of a Cyber Essentials certification, offer ongoing support and a level of experience that is tailored to your company’s needs.
