What is Cyber Essentials?

As part of its drive to get the UK protected from cyber threats, the Government has developed the Cyber Essentials scheme which helps organisations protect themselves from basic internet security threats.

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a key deliverable of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme. It delivers the basic controls that all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet-based threats.

Why do you need Cyber Essentials?

Lexcel wants to put law firms in the forefront of good practice. The information management stand of Lexcel requires law firms do this in two particular ways:

  • By addressing the ever-growing problem of cybersecurity. Lexcel says that Lexcel accredited firms should be cyber essentials certified.
  • Complying with (GDPR) EU General Data Protection Regulation.

With Cyber Essentials, you can prevent around 80% of cyber-attacks. (HM Government 2016)

The scheme provides a mechanism for you to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that you have taken essential precautions to secure your organisation against the majority of cyber risks.
