Cyber Essentials Applications – Top 3 mistakes made by organisations

As an accredited Cyber Essentials certification body (CB), URM handles a significant number of applications every year from a wide variety of organisations and business sectors.
For many organisations looking to achieve cyber essentials certification, having to complete a self-assessment can be challenging, particularly if they have not previously had to verify their IT infrastructure or meet the requirements of a security standard.  As a result, there are a number of errors that we, repeatedly encounter which, worst case, culminates in the assessment being ‘failed’ and the organisation having to resubmit.

Following feedback from our team of assessors, we have put together the 3 most common mistakes that we see appearing on self-assessment questionnaires.
