Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials PLUS (CE+) confirms that your protections against the most common cyber threats are operating correctly.

Fortis’ fixed-price solutions will help you to achieve CE+ certification. 

The simple process is managed through Fortis’ online CE+ portal.  

CYBER ESSENTIALS PLUS

SIMPLE ROUTE TO CYBER ESSENTIALS PLUS CERTIFICATION  

 

Fortis has a simple methodology to help you achieve certification:

 

Fortis conduct the CE+ technical assessment phase (on-site or remote) 

If a pass then CE+ certification will be awarded 

If some fail items, then remediate those within 30 days (NCSC guideline) 

Fortis will deliver a remote re-test of the failed elements once  

If a pass then receive your CE+ certificate  

If still a fail, remediate fail sections and re-start the CE+ certification process  

WHY CYBER ESSENTIALS PLUS?

Cyber Essentials Plus (CE+) includes an external vulnerability assessment, an internal scan and an on-site assessment. It offers more in-depth testing and therefore stronger assurances of security. 

CE+ carries across all elements of Cyber  Essentials, including a technical audit of your systems to verify the Cyber Essentials recommended controls are in place. 

 

This higher level of assurance involves completing the SAQ followed by a technical audit of the systems that are in-scope for Cyber Essentials.

This includes a representative set of user devices, all internet gateways and all servers with services accessible to unauthenticated internet users and virtual desktop environments.

Your assessor will test a suitable random sample of these systems (typically around 10 per cent) and then make a decision whether further testing is required. 

You will need to complete your CE+ audit within 3 months of your last Cyber Essentials basic certification.

If you want to gain CE+ straight away, you can complete the CE SAQ as the initial part of the CE+ certification process.

The assessor will often have to visit your head office and a representative sample of your other offices in order to carry out the tests, however it is also possible to deliver this remotely. 

The cost of a Cyber Essentials PLUS assessment will depend on the size and complexity of your network and devices.
