Cyber Essentials Certification – How do I get a certificate ?
The certificate is issued after submission of a successful self- assessment questionnaire. We investigate your IT network and procedures and fill out a draft of the assessment questionnaire. We review this draft with you and discuss areas where security should be improved. When any required changes have been implemented we then update the assessment and submit the questionnaire on your behalf for certification.
