Cyber Essentials & Cyber Essentials Plus


Are you protected from common internet based threats?

Threats like malware infections, phishing and opportunistic hacking are becoming more common.

Demonstrating good practice in information security not only reduces the risk of cyber-attacks, but reassures staff and customers that you take cyber-security seriously.

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed independently verified self-assessment scheme

Cyber Essentials is designed to help all organisations guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate their commitment to cyber-security. If you bid for government contracts, Cyber Essentials is often a minimum requirement.

Any organisation can complete the self-certification process and achieve Cyber Essentials certification, independently or with assistance.

We offer access to an easy to use online portal to help complete the self-assessment simply and securely.

The certification carries a standard fee of £300.00 + VAT

Once you have provided the contact details and paid online, you’ll receive a transaction confirmation immediately.

We will then create an online portal account for you and send you the login details. You’ll need to provide the correct mobile number as the password is sent securely through a text message.

You should usually receive the login details within a few hours during a UK working day.

Once you have completed and submitted the online questionnaire, our assessors will review your responses. If the assessment is not successful the first time, we provide the detailed notes on the reasons for non-compliances, which you can rectify within 2 days and re-submit.

We also offer a fast turn-around and assisted self-certification consultancy service.

If you choose this service, our certified Cyber Essentials assessors will guide your IT team (whether they are in-house or outsourced) through the self-assessment process; providing guidance and advice on how to ensure you meet the requirements of the scheme. We will organise a 1-hour introduction call to familiarise yourself with the process and walk through all the questions, provide you with email support to answer any of the queries and then have a final review before you submit the questionnaire online. This service is useful for urgent certification requirements.

The assisted certification carries a standard fee of £500.00 + VAT, which includes the certification fee of £300.00


If you require an enhanced level of assurance you should consider Cyber Essentials Plus certification.

Recommended for companies that have successfully achieved Cyber Essentials accreditation, as your chosen assessor we will conduct an independent audit, testing your organisation’s security systems with simulated hacking and phishing attacks as per the CESG guidelines.

Organisations meeting the scheme’s requirements are awarded the Cyber Essentials Plus Certificate, complimentary Cyber Liability Insurance and accreditation logos to promote your cyber-security compliance in your marketing and communications.

The successful companies are also listed on the NCSC website

RightCue also provides a remote assessment service allowing companies to gain certification without site-visits where possible.

Our quotation always includes a pre-audit gap assessment alongwith the final certification audit
