Anyone that is looking to get a clearer picture of how Cyber Essentials certification can open up opportunities within the defence market for their business.
Cyber Essentials is part of the Cyber Security Model (CSM) that is a government and industry backed initiative. It is designed to provide businesses with a set of guidelines that can be applied to their digital infrastructure and policies.
The goal of the initiative is to protect vulnerable businesses from the most common forms of cyber attack.
Companies should gain the Cyber Essentials certification because of the increasing threat to cyber security.
Cyber Essentials reduces the chance of a security breach by 70%.
Recent high profile breaches
There have been a number of high-profile security breaches recently, which have put cyber security firmly in the public eye. The most recent high-profile security breach was Tesco Bank. There where around 9,000 customers got somewhere in the region of £2.5m taken from their accounts.
TalkTalk was also on the receiving end of a security breach that saw the financial data of 157,000 customers stolen by hackers.
Cyber security is extremely important to the MOD for a number of reasons. The most obvious of which is that they deal with extremely sensitive information about national security. If this information were to fall into the wrong hands, the consequences could be a lot more far reaching that just financial.
The MOD’s goal is to illustrate the importance of Cyber Essentials and the Cyber Security model so that the policies and controls permeate down through the supply chain, making it extremely difficult for hackers to achieve a security breach at any point in the supply chain.
