Most frequent questions and answers
Not only does Cyber Essentials confirm that you adhere to an industry recognised set of criteria, we find that many clients gain competitive advantage over their peers who do not hold a similar certification.
We recommend that our clients renew their Cyber Essentials certificate annually to ensure that it is relevant – as of April 2020, certificates will be issued with a 12 month expiry date.
Time to complete the process varies on the level of compliance that you have. For a Self Assessment, we aim to complete and issue certificates within 24 hours – if support is required then the time will reflect this.
Yes. The assessment is based online and completed within our Periculo Portal – this means that you can revisit your assessment when required and at your own pace.
If you fail the assessment we allow for two working days to review and make any changes to your network and systems to comply – it will be reviewed within this time frame at no extra charge. Unfortunately if you fail this too you will have to pay the fee again for a new assessment.
We offer a range of ways to complete the assessment including a supported version. Our consultants will go through the test in advance and highlight any gaps and give you a remediation plan to complete before submitting the assessment.
