About Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats. Gaining Cyber Essentials certification also enables organisations to showcase their credentials as trustworthy and secure when it comes to cyber security. The certification defines a focused set of controls which provide clear guidance on basic cyber security for organisations of all sizes and offers a sound foundation of cyber security measures that all types of organisations can implement.

PFS Group became certified by Cyber Essentials in July 2021 following a desire from within the business to more easily demonstrate how seriously we take cyber security. We are currently working on being certified to the Cyber Essentials Plus level.
