Here’s what our customers say about us

Bulletproof demonstrated their expertise from day one, and thanks to their insight we passed Cyber Essentials first time. With our 10-year history of keeping customer data secure, the Cyber Essentials scheme adds further confidence and value to Backup Systems offerings.

Christopher Blewitt Backup Systems Ltd, Infrastructure Team Lead

B2 was invited to tender for a large Government contract and we needed to be Cyber Essentials certified. Bulletproof’s experienced team guided us through the process, taking us from not knowing what this was through to full Cyber Essentials certification. We’re pleased to say that we won the tender and are now in a position to follow up more Government and large business contracts.

Jeremy Boyce B2 Live Events, Owner

We recently undertook our Cyber Essentials Plus renewal with Bulletproof as they were recommended to us. Communication was fast and reliable, making the certification process simple, whilst still remaining comprehensive and ensuring full compliance.

Olivia Crouch Total Security, Head of IT

We sought to renew our Cyber Essentials accreditation but had concerns regarding the status of our previous assessor so were forced to seek a new partner. After looking at several options we chose Bulletproof and are very pleased with that choice. The entire process, and in particular the quality of communications and assistance, has been thorough and of a high standard. I am happy to recommend Bulletproof and look forward to continuing our Cyber Essentials journey towards the ‘Plus’ certification with them in the coming years.

    What’s involved in Cyber Essentials certification?

    With over 80% of UK businesses vulnerable to avoidable security threats, the Cyber Essentials framework has been designed as a strong security baseline for every business in every industry. Mapping against five simple technical controls means it’s easy to achieve Cyber Essentials certification. These include:

    • Access control
    • Firewalls and routers
    • Malware protection
    • Secure configuration
    • Software updates
    Issued to Bulletproof by The IASME Consortium Ltd.

    Frequently asked questions

    Cyber Essentials is an independently verified self-assessment questionnaire and the goal is to get all questions correct/compliant to obtain a pass.

    Cyber Essentials Plus is the next step after Cyber Essentials. It can be thought of as an independent verification of everything that was claimed in Cyber Essentials. This extra level of scrutiny means your Cyber Essentials Plus badge will hold more weight with potential customers.

    Whilst Cyber Essentials Plus is the more expensive of the two, it is held in higher regard and much of the work is done by the Certification Body. If you feel a bit overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, don’t worry – we have a range of packages to help you through the process.

    • Enhanced security – helps protect your organisation from the most common internet based cyber attacks such as phishing, malware, ransomware, password guessing and network attacks.
    • Simple and cost effective – a simple process with a Cyber Essentials certification fee starting from £295.
    • Gain and retain business – an increasing number of public, private and third sector contracts are mandating or actively encouraging Cyber Essentials from their suppliers.
    • Aligns with GDPR – recognised by the Information Commissioner’s Office as a scheme that can provide security assurances that help protect personal data.
    • Flexible scheme – regardless of sector or size, the scheme reviews basic, yet effective, technical controls an organisation has in place. The scheme also recognises that not all organisations have a dedicated IT department, or an in-depth knowledge of cyber security.

    Once you have completed your answers, please submit the assessment. We will then assign an assessor and you will be scheduled for marking. Once marked you will get your results from the IASME portal, you will either pass, fail, or get asked for more information.

    If you fail or get asked for more information you will have a chance to review your answers and update them using the guidance notes the assessor leaves for you.

    You can then resubmit and once again you will be scheduled for marking with hopefully a pass being the result. You may get asked for more information again which will require you to readdress it, if you fail twice though that would mean you would have to repurchase Cyber Essentials to be able to retry.

    Our experts are the ones to trust when it comes to your cyber security
