Frequently Asked Questions
We've got A's for your Q's
WHERE CAN I FIND THE DOCUMENT WHICH DESCRIBES THE FULL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CYBER ESSENTIALS SCHEME?
You can download the requirements from the UK Government website here.
ARE THERE ANY AUTOMATIC FAIL QUESTIONS?
Any company using unsupported software in the scope of the assessment, such as Microsoft XP, will probably fail to achieve Cyber Essentials certification.
HOW MANY OF THE QUESTIONS DO I NEED TO GET RIGHT TO PASS?
You need to get nearly all the questions right (compliant) to pass the Cyber Essentials assessment. You do need to be controlling all these aspects of your system to be certified. This very strict pass criteria is set by the UK Government. If you are not compliant in some of the questions we suggest you try and change your processes to meet the requirement and certainly add notes to explain why you are not compliant in this aspect and how else you control that risk.
IF I FAIL WILL I GET FEEDBACK ABOUT WHY I FAILED?
All clients get feedback on any aspect of the assessment which is not fully compliant. You will get a pdf of all the answers you gave and comments from the assessor against any that were considered non-compliant. If you fail the assessment this feedback should help you improve your security so you can pass in the future.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Once you sign up we will send you your portal login within 24 hours. Once you have answered all of the questions we will asses within 24 hours and if you pass you will be able to download your certificate straight away.
If you signup for the Plus package, once you have completed the initial assesment we will arrange a convienant time to book in the on-site assessment. This usually takes one day, but if your environment is more complex you may need an additional day.
HOW CAN I REMEMBER TO RE CERTIFY WITHIN A YEAR?
We will email you with a reminder roughly a month before you have to be re certified.
IF I FAIL WILL I HAVE TO PAY ANOTHER £300 TO TAKE THE ASSESSMENT AGAIN?
If you fail we allow you two working days to examine the feedback from the assessor and change any simple issues with your network and policies. You can then update your answers and the assessor will have another look without any extra charges. However, if you still fail after these two days you will have to reapply and pay the assessment fee again.
HOW LONG DOES THE CERTIFICATION LAST BEFORE I HAVE TO RENEW MY CYBER ESSENTIALS CERTIFICATION?
It is recommended by the UK government that you renew your certification at least annually. We remove companies from our ‘certified organisations’ list if they have not been certified in the past year.
HOW CAN MY CUSTOMERS CHECK IF I HAVE CYBER ESSENTIALS OR CYBER ESSENTIALS PLUS CERTIFICATION?
All your customers will be able to search for your certificate via the National Cyber Security Centre webpage. They will be able to search by your company name to find your date of Cyber Essentials certification.
