BCAW Day 3 – Continuing Growth in Cyber Essentials Certifications

Our daily blog series for Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) 2019 continues with an update on information security….

Based on information from four of the five recognised accreditation bodies (CREST, IASME, APMG and QG Management Systems), there has been another big increase in the number of organisations achieving certification under the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus schemes.  As of this week, a total of 13 565 organisations were certified through these four accreditation bodies, a rise of 74% since this time last year.  As can be seen in the graph below, there is still no evidence of interest in the scheme tailing off.
