Go it alone
You can try and interpret the requirements of the scheme and application form yourself.
Consultants will typically charge you over £1,500+VAT to advise on the requirements.
With the right knowledge and process you can undertake Cyber Essentials with little fuss.
How much does it cost?
There are three cost areas to consider:
The cost in time or money to understand the requirements against your business.
This might include buying anti-virus software if it's not already in place or if it's outdated.
There is a certification fee of £300+VAT, payable to a Certification Body*.
Cyber Essentials creates a new administrative overhead.
The scheme's requirements might change mid-year, creating effort to understand changes.
You have to recomplete the application form every 12-months; a pain when requirements change.
Getting a handle on the process early-on should reduce overall costs for long-term compliance.
Designed and written for the layman; no technical expertise is required of you.
You will be given a logical series of questions based on your business.
Once you are ready to proceed your certificate* is usually issued the same working day.
Information for understanding and attending to each task is provided when needed.
