Cyber Essentials Online

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed and industry-supported scheme that helps businesses protect themselves against the growing threat of cyber attacks and provides a clear statement of the basic controls organisations should have in place to protect them.

When the MOD releases a new contract for tender, they identify the level of risk for each piece of work and the organisation that wins the contract will need to demonstrate that they have the required controls in place. This also includes the supply chain as each tender included in the supply chain will also be subject to the risk assessment.

Having a secure supply chain that has cyber defences in place is more important to the MOD than ever before – which is why Cyber Essentials is the minimum level of certification an organisation needs to implement in order to bid for new MOD contracts that involve Ministry of Defence Identifiable Information (MODII).
