SECRC launches 6 part ‘Getting to grips with Cyber Essentials' video series

The South East Cyber Resilience Centre (SECRC) working in conjunction with its Trusted Partners has produced a 6-part video series to educate businesses in the South East on Cyber Essentials and why businesses should become Cyber Essentials certified.

Trusted Partners are official providers of Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus Certification to our local businesses and charities.

Cyber Essentials helps you to guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrates your commitment to cyber security, which can often become a requirement when tendering for work in both public and private sectors.

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective Government backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.

There are two levels of certification and you can read about them here.

Over the next few weeks, the series will be published to take businesses through the 5 Cyber Essentials control areas.

Today the first two episodes of the series have been published.
