Cyber Essentials Foundation Course


Call for information



The Cyber Essentials scheme provides businesses small and large with clarity on good basic cyber security practice. By focussing on basic cyber hygiene, your company will be better protected from the most common cyber threats.

Cyber Essentials is for all organisations, of all sizes, and in all sectors – we encourage all to adopt the requirements as appropriate to their business. This is not limited to companies in the private sector, but is also applicable to universities, charities, and public sector organisations.

Cyber Essentials is mandatory for central government contracts advertised after 1 October 2014 which involve handling personal information and providing certain ICT products and services. The scheme has been developed as part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme and in close consultation with industry.

Cyber Essentials Foundation Course: This one day course is aligned to the Cyber Essentials Scheme launched by the UK Government in 2014 and will enable delegates to understand how to apply the requirements as set out by the scheme.
Designed for business managers and IT managers in all UK businesses, this hands-on package provides the knowledge to prevent cyber-attacks and achieve an improved cyber security posture. It will also help to meet the certification criteria of the Cyber Essentials Scheme, which will soon be a requirement in certain UK government procurement contracts.

Reduce your organisation’s vulnerability to cyber threats
The Cyber Essentials Scheme has been developed by the UK Government to help businesses deal with the business-critical issue of cyber security. The scheme provides a set of controls that organisations can implement to achieve a basic level of cyber security.
