Cyber Essentials is a self-assessment route to certification against the government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme. The cost of self-assessment is £300 + VAT. This includes:

  • Certification against basic level Cyber Essentials
  • Optional certification against the IASME standard
  • Automatic cyber liability insurance for UK domiciled organisations with less than £20m turnover who pass the assessment (terms apply)


Cyber Essentials PLUS involves both internal and external tests of your network and computers. It will involve a visit to your site and gives more assurance that you are complying with the Cyber Essentials Scheme than the basic self assessment level.
