Cyber Security and Cyber Essentials Workshop

Cyber Security and Cyber Essentials Workshop

35 35 people viewed this event.

Increasingly buyers in all sectors, require suppliers to have Cyber Essentials certification. Obtaining the accreditation can open new business opportunities.

This in-person half-day workshop aims to give attendees greater knowledge of cyber security, the risks of not taking it seriously, and how Cyber Essentials Certification can benefit your business.

Who Should Attend

While any sector can benefit from Cyber Essentials, it is often emphasized in sectors that handle sensitive information or critical infrastructure, such as;

  • Defence
  • Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Finance
  • Healthcare
  • Energy

However, the principles and practices outlined in the Cyber Essentials framework are applicable to organizations of all types and sizes.

Workshop Agenda

  • What is cyber security?
    • The different types of cyber-attack (including phishing + ransomware).
    • Consequences of successful attacks
    • The important role that your staff play.
    • What steps a business can take to be better protected including backups, patching, training and policies?
    • Signpost to free resources.
  • What is Cyber Essentials/Plus? Using a fictitious business, look at:
    • What is CE/Plus?
    • What the differences are between them?
    • What is the process for going through certification and the most common issues that we find?
    • What are the benefits of getting certification?

Cyber Essentials Gap Analysis

To enhance the workshop, a limited number of company-specific Cyber Essentials Gap Analysis will be available to the attending businesses.

The 1-2-1 Cyber Essential Gap Analysis will examine key questions from the official Cyber Essentials question set to see how equipped the business is to apply for certification and highlight areas of improvement. At the conclusion of the assessment each business will be provided with a report detailing their responses and improvements that need to be made.

How Cyber Essentials Benefits Business?

Cyber Essentials accreditation is a proactive step that businesses can take to improve their cybersecurity, demonstrate commitment to security, and gain a competitive edge in the market.

  • Cybersecurity Baseline – Cyber Essentials provides a baseline of fundamental cybersecurity measures, ensuring that essential security controls are in place
  • Protection Against Common Threats – the accreditation focuses on protecting against common cyber threats, significantly reducing the risk of security issues
  • Enhanced Cyber Resilience – businesses enhance their overall cyber resilience
  • Competitive Advantage – Cyber Essentials accreditation can be a valuable differentiator in the marketplace
  • Winning Contracts – some government contracts and business opportunities, especially in the UK, require suppliers to have Cyber Essentials certification. Obtaining the accreditation can open up new business opportunities and make a company eligible for certain contracts
