What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is an effective, Government backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.

Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They're the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it's unlocked. Our advice is designed to prevent these attacks.

Why should you get Cyber Essentials?
  1. Certified cyber security
  2. Reassure customers that you are working to secure your IT against cyber attack
  3. Attract new business with the promise you have cyber security measures in place
  4. You have a clear picture of your organisation's cyber security level
  5. Some Government contracts require Cyber Essentials certification

What our
members and
visitors say...

Every time I come to one of your events I have a fun and very fruitful time. Thank you again for creating a fantastic environment for us all to build relationships.

Kintish Networking Skills
What is clearly apparent about The Business Network is that, unlike so many other networking groups and events that I have attended, you take an active role in connecting your members where you see there is an opportunity. Typically these networking events are organised, payments are collected from the delegates and the delegates are then left to get on with the networking themselves. Not with The Business Network! This is clearly a differentiator and I'm both surprised and delighted by the level of attention you give to your members, in particular to identifying those potentials relationships that that could benefit members and making the connections for us where we haven't already had the chance to connect.
