Cyber Essentials Scheme Being Updated on 24 April 2023

On 23 January 2023, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) published an updated set of requirements, version 3.1, for the Cyber Essentials Scheme which come into force on 24 April 2023.   Whilst the changes are described as being more light touch in comparison to the 2022 update, extra guidance and clarification is provided on compulsory and non-compulsory controls.  A significant number of clarification and guidance updates have been made to improve the user friendliness and accessibility of the Scheme.  Of greater significance to many organisations, 24 April 2023 represents the deferred date when they will need to meet the 2022 update requirements by protecting all Cloud-based user accounts with multi-factor authentication (MFA), removing or segregating all unsupported software and supporting all in-scope thin clients with security updates.
