The Cyber Essentials mark is a cybersecurity certification for organisations that are embarking on their cybersecurity journey. It is targeted at organisations such as Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Some SMEs have limited IT and/or cybersecurity expertise and resources;  the Cyber Essentials mark aims to enable them to prioritise the cybersecurity measures needed to safeguard their systems and operations from common cyber-attacks.

The Cyber Essentials mark also serves to recognise the organisations that have put in place good cyber hygiene measures.
