Cyber Essentials Checklist: Is your IT company competent to help you pass Cyber Essentials?

Many businesses turn to their IT company to help them pass Cyber Essentials accreditation. The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) recently provided guidance and a Cyber Essentials checklist for businesses using their IT support business to implement the security controls needed to pass Cyber Essentials. The guidance helps organisations to check whether their third party IT company is helping them to meet Cyber Essentials criteria. NCSC's message is clear; while IT providers maybe good at traditional IT and have good technical knowledge, it doesn't mean they have good understanding about cybersecurity.
