What defence experts say about Cyber Essentials

The Ministry of Defence Requirement

Since 1 January 2016, any supplier bidding for a new MOD contract involving MOD identifiable information needs to be Cyber Essentials accredited.

The Cyber Essentials Scheme (CES) is a set of measures that all organisations should implement to protect against basic cyber threats on the internet.

In addition, the Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP) is implementing a defence specific Cyber Security Model (CSM) which will require some suppliers to ensure additional cyber security controls are in place ahead of contract award.

Find out more about the Cyber Essentials Scheme and the process for certification.

What defence experts say about Cyber Essentials

"Cyber Essentials provides the foundation for good cyber security. It demonstrates that an organisation is doing the simple things well and means they are likely to be able to prevent a lot of attacks being successful. It is also the basis for the Defence specific Cyber Security Model which will follow later this year."
Daniel Selman, Deputy Head of Cyber Security, MOD, 27/04/16
