Your options

Without technical or compliance expertise Cyber Essentials can be tough going. Your options are:

Go it alone

You can try and interpret the requirements of the scheme and application form yourself.

Consultancy

Consultants will typically charge you over £1,500+VAT to advise on the requirements.

Supercharged DIY

With the right knowledge and process you can accomplish Cyber Essentials with little fuss.

How much does it cost?

There are three cost areas to consider:

Preparation

The cost in time or money to understand the requirements against your business.

Remediation

This might include buying anti-virus software if it's not already in place or if it's out-dated.

Certification

There is a certification fee, typically £300+VAT, payable to a Certification Body.

Worth knowing

Cyber Essentials creates a new administrative overhead.

Annual effort

The scheme's requirements might change mid-year, creating effort to understand changes.

Annual renewal

You have to recomplete the application form every 12-months; a pain when requirements change.

Annual expense

Getting a handle on the process early-on should reduce overall costs for long-term compliance.
