In research and education, you know how important it is to have Cyber Essentials certification. As a government-backed scheme, Cyber Essentials helps give peace of mind that you’ve put essential security protections in place – and is critical for both reputation and compliance.
But when getting certification, you want to work with a trusted certification body who understands the needs of the sector. So, in response to member demand, we are now offering Cyber Essentials as a service. Use this service to obtain a Cyber Essentials certificate, and to get essential advice and guidance you need if you’re working towards it.
How does this service help my organisation?
With our Cyber Essentials service, members will have reassurance that their defences are protected against many of the most common cyber-attacks.
The core of the service is an online questionnaire to check whether you meet the requirements for Cyber Essentials certification. This means you can quickly and easily understand where you stand on Cyber Essentials – and the areas where you may need to improve.
Get trusted advice to improve security
If you are working toward Cyber Essentials, we can offer advice and guidance to help you improve security and pass the test. The advice we offer includes online responses, as part of our portal – but we can also offer follow-up advice from our IASME-approved Cyber Essentials assessors.
Demonstrate that you have protections in place
Once you’ve passed Cyber Essentials, your certificate can be used to show that you have essential cyber security protections in place. This helps you to improve your reputation as a business.
You will receive a Cyber Essentials logo for your website, which helps to give stakeholders peace of mind when dealing with you. A Cyber Essentials certificate also means you are free to bid for government contracts involving sensitive or personal information – a potentially vital aspect of compliance for a research organisation.
Stay up to date with cyber security
Cyber Essentials is an annual process. We can help you to renew your certification – so you stay on top of it, year after year.
Trust in our experience

This is part of a suite of security services designed to defend the Janet Network, to protect your organisation and to help you protect your organisation yourself.
