Cyber Essentials Certification

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a cybersecurity standard against which organisations can be assessed and certified. The scheme is based on the ’10 Steps to Cyber Security’ which was launched by the government in 2012. Within this, the government urged companies to take ownership of their cyber risks and ensure a minimum level of cybersecurity.

KCS have achieved Cyber Essentials certification.

Our ongoing commitment to cybersecurity, sees KCS achieving certification to the UK government’s Cyber Essentials scheme.

Jointly developed by the UK government and cybersecurity industry, the Cyber Essentials scheme defines a baseline standard of security for businesses in the UK. It outlines the controls that all organisations should implement to help mitigate risks from common internet-based threats.
