On 24th January 2022 the NCSC and IASME implemented an updated set of requirements for Cyber Essentials. This update was the biggest overhaul of the scheme’s technical controls since it was launched in 2014 and came in response to the cyber security challenges organisations now regularly face.
The scheme operates in an environment that has changed dramatically in the last seven years and to reflect these changes, the pricing of Cyber Essentials has adopted a new tiered structure.
Micro businesses and organisations will continue to pay the previous £300 assessment charge, but small, medium and large organisations will be charged on a sliding scale that aims to better reflect the complexity involved in assessing larger organisations.
