We are a trusted partner supporting cyber security and resilience.

NCSC Approved Cyber Advisor for Cyber Essentials and able certify organisations for Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.

Cyber Essentials is an effective scheme that seeks to help organisations, regardless of size, improve their cyber resilience and protect themselves against the most common cyber attacks, it helps them demonstrate their commitment to cyber security. Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, the scheme requirements are designed to prevent these attacks. Common vulnerabilities can mark an organisation out for more targeted in-depth and unwanted attention from cyber criminals and others. Certification can provide assurance to the organisation and other stakeholders that defences are in place that will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

Cyber Essentials is an annually renewed certification.
* Certification price depends on company size
** Access to the portal is limited to 6 months once your account has been created
*** Further information available on request.

Vulnerability Testing

The aim of vulnerability testing is to find weaknesses criminals could use (or are already), tests cover areas such as:

  • Patching and updates on all systems
  • Checking how securely configured are your systems
  • Weak or reused passwords
  • Testing of your network and devices for known weaknesses
  • External test of your office IP address(es), what is exposed?
  • Test of your Wi-Fi, how is it secured?
  • And many other areas

The benefit of doing this is to:

  • stay in business and stay operational
  • identify and fix issues
  • identify if your IT support provider is doing the right thing
  • reduced damage if you are breached/hacked
  • avoid reputational damage
  • avoid expensive downtime
  • avoid or reduce GDPR fines
  • partly meet your obligations under Article 32 of the GDPR in relation to testing

Once completed you will have a technical report that you can use or provide to your external IT support supplier to resolve, you may want another test to prove it has been done correctly.

This service can also be used to gauge the effectiveness of your external IT support service in relation to security.

I’ve used the services of David and Cyber Aggress for a couple of years after meeting him at a networking event. I have worked with him on projects for my business and regularly recommend him to our clients, several of which have gone on to achieve the Cyber Essential Plus certification with his help and guidance. His knowledge of the cyber security industry and ability to find solutions to complex IT security issues continually impresses me and I always learn a lot when we work together at clients. If you are serious about improving your Cyber Security then I strongly recommend you speak to David.

“Our company has been steadily growing over the past few years and our IT systems required various additions and have been well-supported externally by Lighthouse Network & IT Systems. We found participating in the Cyber Essentials scheme useful, a methodical way of checking our IT systems to make sure they are up to a standard able to achieve certification. We could not have achieved our badge without the professional expertise of CyberAggress.”

“Working with Dave at CyberAggress was a joy. There’s nothing he doesn’t know about cyber security, and he made the whole process simple. It’s not just the form filling that helps you become more secure, it’s the fact that doing so gets you to question everything in the process. Cyber Essentials is just as much related to education and awareness, as it is about making technical changes and security improvements. It’s an eye-opener, and one that every business should invest in.”

Gary Ennis Director / Trainer, NSDesign Ltd
