What is a Cyber Essentials Readiness Audit?

Ensuring the security of sensitive information and defending against cyber threats are top priorities at Corbel, based in Ipswich.

Our thorough audit service specialises in assessing your business’s Cyber Security measures, providing actionable recommendations to support you in obtaining Cyber Essentials accreditation.

Through pinpointing and addressing areas of risk, our expert team adeptly navigates you through the accreditation process, guaranteeing a smooth journey towards achieving your accreditation objectives.

What are the benefits of Cyber Essentials Certification?

Meeting certification requirements strengthens your defences against 99% of prevalent Cyber Security threats. This certification stands as a tangible showcase of your commitment to protecting your IT infrastructure and valuable data, building trust among clients, insurers, and regulatory bodies.

Furthermore, it unlocks avenues for new business opportunities, as an increasing number of government and private sector accounts prioritise organisations with Cyber Essentials certification.

Our Approach

At Corbel, we ardently support the Cyber Essentials Certification Scheme. We strongly emphasise the importance for businesses across Ipswich, Newmarket, Lowestoft, Sudbury, Felixstowe and throughout Suffolk to proactively safeguard themselves and their esteemed customers from the continually evolving landscape of online threats and malicious attacks.

Our dedicated strategy focuses on educating our clients and aiding them in evaluating their Cyber Security strengths and weaknesses. Once we ensure the security and resilience of their IT infrastructure, we actively assist and guide them toward achieving the esteemed Cyber Essentials certification.

This includes:

Initial Assessment:

  • We will conduct a thorough review of your existing Cyber Security policies, procedures, and documentation.
  • Our team will interview key personnel to gain a comprehensive understanding of your current practices and challenges.
  • We will assess your network architecture, infrastructure, and access controls to identify any areas of concern.

Vulnerability Assessment:

  • Our IT experts will perform comprehensive scanning and testing of your network infrastructure, systems, and applications.
  • We will identify vulnerabilities, potential threats, and associated risks that may pose a risk to your security.
  • Our analysis will include an evaluation of your existing security controls, such as firewalls and antivirus software.

Policy and Procedure Review:

  • We will carefully examine your Cyber Security policies, incident response plans, and Disaster Recovery procedures.
  • Our assessment will cover data protection measures, access management protocols, and user awareness training programs.
  • We will ensure that your existing practices align with the requirements of the Cyber Essentials certification.

Reporting and Recommendations:

  • You will receive a detailed audit report that highlights our findings, vulnerabilities discovered, and weaknesses identified.
  • Our team will provide prioritised recommendations specifically tailored to address your company’s unique needs.
  • We will offer clear guidance on implementing the suggested improvements to enhance your Cyber Security resilience and lead you to successfully obtain the Cyber Essentials accreditation.

Staff Top Tip

Secure your Devices

Implement proactive measures to secure your devices, including laptops, smartphones, and tablets, safeguarding both personal information and business data. Establish robust screen locks, such as PINs, passwords, or biometric authentication (e.g., fingerprint or facial recognition), on all devices. This deters unauthorised access when devices are idle and adds an extra layer of defence against potential data breaches.

Hannah migrated us over to Microsoft 365 back in 2020. The whole migration was planned out really well and managed through to a really high standard. Hannah was a pleasure to work with, friendly, approachable and very patient. Nothing was too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend Hannah to any local business looking for IT services.

We have recently begun working with Corbel and have been really impressed so far. The team are very friendly and have resolved some long-standing IT issues for us that others have been unable to resolve; never hesitating to go above and beyond to exceed expectations. If the team are on a call about one specific issue and notice another unrelated issue, they will look to fix this straight away for us which is greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Corbel if you were thinking of changing IT Support providers.
