Cyber Essentials is an annually renewable certification that demonstrates that your organisation has the most important cyber security controls in place.
As cyber criminals exploit the latest innovations in technology, cyber security must evolve quickly to respond to developing threats.
The Cyber Essentials scheme requirements and question set are reviewed and updated regularly by a team of experts. This is important to keep the Cyber Essentials controls effective at protecting organisations against commodity cyber attacks. For this reason, the certification may change slightly from year to year.
Different versions of the verified-assessment question set are given different names. The different versions of the requirements documents are given different numbers (the current one is V3.1).
IASME has created some guidance that details the differences between the most recent question set (‘Montpellier’-from April 24th 2023) and the one it replaced, (‘Evendine’ -before April 24th 2023). What are the differences between Cyber Essentials (Montpellier) and Cyber Essentials (Evendine)?
