A great organisation to work with. We used them for our Cyber Essentials certification and found them to be most helpful in gaining this. Super quick process from start to finish, never not on the end of an email or telephone to talk to.

After much research we found Cyberlab. Ryan was my contact from the day one initial quote through Cyber Essentials, Cyber Essentials Audit, IASME Governance self-certified and on to our IASME Governance GOLD certification. The understanding, support and guidance we received from Ryan was simply outstanding. I can’t recommend Cyberlab enough.

We searched the market extensively and evaluated over seven different companies. They varied in price and skillset, we found Cyberlab had a fair price (in the middle third) and an excellent understanding of our needs, the work that needed to be done and this skill set and superior knowledge meant they were the right partner for us. We have bought more services from them since and I would highly recommend them as a 'go to' cyber security and GDPR consultant and auditor. We will use them now for many years going forwards.

Cyber Essentials Plus FAQ

Cyber Essentials Plus provides a more advanced level of assurance and includes a technical audit of the systems that are in scope for Cyber Essentials. Organisations applying for Cyber Essentials Plus must also pass an on-site/remote assessment and an internal vulnerability scan, plus an external vulnerability scan conducted by Cyberlab.

Only certification bodies that have been trained and are currently licensed by IASME to certify against the government’s Cyber Essentials scheme can undertake assessments and issue certificates. Cyberlab assessors are IASME trained and Cyberlab is licensed to deliver Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certifications.

Do not worry, it is actually quite uncommon for an organisation to pass Cyber Essentials Plus without any remediation required. 

If you fail the assessment, the assessor will prepare a report outlining the reasons and the remediation work that is required in order to achieve a pass. There is then a 30 day retesting window where the organisation can carry out the remediation steps that are listed. Cyberlab can then retest just those areas which resulted in the fail within the 30 day retesting window, if those vulnerabilities are found to have been mitigated then Cyberlab will then be in a position to award a pass for Cyber Essentials Plus.

Yes, Cyber Essentials Plus is a verification assessment of the controls listed in the Cyber Essentials self-assessment questionnaire.

All organisations must achieve Cyber Essentials first, they then have a 3 month window to schedule their Cyber Essentials Plus assessment.

This depends on the size of your network and how many devices make up the sample the Cyber assessor will need to test.

Generally, we are able to complete all testing within one business day and will prepare a schedule with you in advance to minimise disruption to your business.

For Cyber Essentials, once you have completed the self-assessment questions on the online portal we aim to turnaround all assessments within 24 hours.

For Cyber Essentials Plus, this must be carried out within 3 months of achieving the CE accreditation. The CE+ requires an on-site audit which can be scheduled as soon as a signed order is request and a CE pass is in place.

We will email you with a reminder in advance of your expiry date outlining the steps involved in order to work through your renewal.

 In order to achieve a pass and be awarded the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation an organisation must pass all of the five tests that make up the Cyber Essentials Plus assessment.

Yes, in advance of your scheduled Cyber Essentials Plus assessment we will send you a pdf document which outlines the tests that will be involved and what is required on the day.

There is nothing we require you to do in advance of your assessment, this document is for information only.
