Good basic technical security is a must for all organisations, and Cyber Essentials could help focus of the important things. Achieving this though can be tricky, especially in the fast changing cyber landscape in which we all now exist.
So what are your options? For larger organisations or those with the resources then looking at specific IT security standards could be an option – you might go for ISO 27001. This can be a lengthy and costly option though.
Perhaps a better option in the immediate term, especially in light of GDPR, is to go for something more straightforwards like Cyber Essentials. This simple standard offers a basic grounding in technical security.
Even better, if it is of interest, you can assess yourself for free using the Gydeline software.
