CES Testing Service – Cyber Essentials Scheme
Mitigate risk from cyber security threats
Get your Cyber Essentials certification
MTI provides a Cyber Essentials Scheme assessment service with everything you need to achieve CREST accredited Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
What is it?
As a CREST accredited Certifying Body, MTI can help your organisation achieve Certification to the Governments Cyber Essentials Scheme (CES).
The Cyber Essentials Scheme (CES) is broken down in two stages:
- CES Stage 1
- CES Plus (Stage 2)
This involves completing a questionnaire and submitting it to MTI for scoring and your external network undergoing a Vulnerability Scan. If no failing issues exist, then a pass certificate is immediately awarded.
However, if issues are present that result in a fail, you will receive a detailed report outlining the issues and advising on remediation steps. The security tester will be available to discuss the issues in detail.
CES Plus – Stage 2
This is conducted onsite at your office and involves performing a Build Review of a sample of Work Stations (and Servers under certain conditions), checking if email, web filtering is effective. The service also reviews your host-based antivirus/malware solution. A sample of mobile devices will also be reviewed to ensure that they are correctly configured and up-to-date.
MTI consultants will support the process from start to finish including assisting in completing the self-assessment questionnaire, conducting the tests and offering support for the remediation steps required to achieve a pass.
Generally most organisations will undergo CES Stage 1 testing before they undergo Stage 2 but they can be tested in any order or at the same time; however, CES Plus accreditation cannot be awarded until CES Stage 1 has been passed.
Our CES services include:
CES Stage 1 – Includes the Questionnaire and External Scan for up to 50 IP addresses
CES Plus (Stage 2) – Includes CES Stage 1 & CES Plus testing for 5 internal hosts, 2 mobile devices and malicious file filtering assessment.
Alternatively, if we are conducting a larger testing project for you we can incorporate CES Plus testing at no extra charge if the same hosts are being reviewed.
Special Offer for 2017; Our service provides unlimited retests until you obtain a pass.
