Requires the organisation to complete a self-assessment questionnaire, with responses independently reviewed by an external certifying body.
Cyber Essentials Plus
Involves tests of the systems which are carried out by an external certifying body, using a range of tools and techniques.
Cyber Essentials documents are FREE to download and any organisation can use the guidance to implement essential security controls, but some organisations want or need to gain independent assurance that they have fully deployed the controls.
That’s where we help our clients with preparation for assessments. Our team is able to run through and offer guidance on the questionnaire, and conduct an assessment of your controls to make sure you are compliant.
Organisations that have been successfully independently assessed or tested through the Scheme’s assurance framework will attain a Cyber Essentials certification badge. This will help demonstrate to partners or clients that your company takes cybersecurity seriously, and allows your company to advertise the fact that it adheres to a government-endorsed standard.

IT Support FAQs
Our Data Recovery Technicians and Customer Services staff answer many thousands of telephone inquiries each year and although the need for a data recovery service is new to most of them the data loss incidents generally involve common device types and recurring themed questions.
1. What are IT packages?
They are a monthly contract with your IT services provider, who will be responsible for keeping certain elements of your IT software (like Microsoft products) and hardware (like laptops and desktop computers) operational. Managed IT packages ensure you have the coverage and protection your company needs to stay productive. They are cheaper than ad hoc support when something goes wrong, and ensure priority service.
2. What are managed IT services?
This is when you engage an external team to handle your IT support. It’s an efficient and cost-effective way of maintaining your IT infrastructure. An IT support provider will be up-to-date on current best practice and the latest certifications and have the resource to respond to emergencies promptly. For businesses that don’t have an internal IT support team, it means your employees remain productive and aren’t trying to troubleshoot issues themselves. We can also support an internal IT support team.
3. Will I get on-site support with an IT managed services package?
Yes, on-site support is included – as far as we’re concerned, it’s an essential component of good service. We can solve most maintenance and arising problems remotely as part of a managed IT services package. However, if we need to make an on-site visit, we include this in all our packages too, with no extra charge for time and travel.
