star this property answer text <p>The Cyber Essentials scheme sets out the basic technical controls which all organisations relying on the internet should have in place to prevent common online attacks. The scheme does not require organisations certified under the scheme to use third parties which are also compliant with the scheme, though this is something the Government would recommend where appropriate.</p><p> </p><p>The Government itself requires its suppliers to hold a Cyber Essentials certificate where contracts involve the handling of sensitive data, such as personal and financial information, or the provision of certain ICT products and services. The recently published National Cyber Security Strategy set out a success measure that all Government suppliers will meet appropriate cyber security standards by 2021.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the Government is working with industry to ensure businesses encourage the firms in their supply chains to adopt Cyber Essentials where necessary and appropriate; for example, organisations could work with their supply chains and discuss the best way to add resilience to the end-to-end delivery of a product or service, which could include a third party adopting Cyber Essentials.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Cyber Essentials scheme sets out the basic technical controls which all organisations relying on the internet should have in place to prevent common online attacks. The scheme requires up-to-date malware protection software to be installed on all internet-connected computers: this is designed to detect and disable the malicious software which an organisation might be exposed to via phishing attacks, and prevent users making connections to malicious websites on the internet.</p><p> </p><p>Cyber Essentials is a technical scheme and staff awareness training is therefore out of scope; however other pieces of guidance from the Government do recommend this. For example, the ‘10 Steps to Cyber Security’, the Government’s key piece of advice for organisations on managing cyber risk, sets out the importance of user education and awareness.</p><p> </p><p>The Government offers a range of free online cyber security training programmes at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/cyber-security-training-for-business. In addition, the National Cyber Security Centre recently published a blog about phishing and user training, which explains that phishing is best tackled by implementing good technical defences and combining these with reasonable levels of user awareness, education and training: https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/blog-post/im-gonna-stop-you-little-phishie</p>
