Cyber Essentials - DCMS Survey

Published

Cyber Essentials would like to hear your views on how they can help businesses safe guard against cyber attacks. Please take a few minutes to complete a short questionnaire.

The government is working to make the UK the safest place to live and work online. It is doing this through a number of actions ranging from regulation (NIS, GDPR) to the provision of guidance (NCSC Small Business Guide, 10 Steps to Cyber Security).

Government backed assurance schemes, such as Cyber Essentials / Cyber Essentials Plus have played an important role in driving minimum standards and increasing cyber resilience across the economy. Under Pillar 2 of the National Cyber Strategy 2022, HMG commits to continuing “to promote take-up of accreditations and standards such as the Cyber Essentials certification” by “developing commercial offerings around Cyber Essentials which will make it easier for small businesses to access basic advice.”

To deliver against this commitment, it would be useful to get a better understanding of how organisations engage with Cyber Essentials to improve their cyber resilience and the extent to which it is used as a tool to manage third party cyber security risk.

If you could take a few minutes to fill out this short questionnaire it would be highly useful as we look to raise awareness, ensure accessibility and increase appropriate market driven demand for Cyber Essentials across the economy.
