A fast-track approach to implementing the basic cyber security measures to protect SMEs against 80% of cyber attacks.


What is CyberWyse?

CyberWyse is a smart packaging of the UK’s best-known cyber security measures for SMEs to provide you with all you need to protect your business from basic cyber attacks.

It combines certification for Cyber Essentials (CE) PLUS and the Information Assurance for Small Medium Enterprise (IASME) Governance Standard with cyber security insurance. All are delivered with full support from cyber security specialists, Ascentor.

CE PLUS is the higher of two levels of CE certification within the CE Scheme endorsed by the UK Government through the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). The IASME Governance Standard complements CE PLUS with additional risk-based measures covering aspects such as physical security, staff awareness, operations, incident management and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

When implemented effectively, the two standards provide a holistic set of pragmatic, appropriate and cost effect controls that will thwart the majority of cyber attacks.

Why achieve CyberWyse certification?

If you’ve been hacked, are worried about being hacked, or you need to demonstrate to your client base that you are taking cyber security for your SME seriously, CyberWyse is for you. You could search the internet for what to do and where to go, but we’ve made it easy for you. We designed CyberWyse for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) who know they need to take action now but are just not sure what to do.

We take away the headache of not having enough time, skill or resources and help you through a quick and effective approach to reducing your organisation’s exposure to cyber risk. Perhaps more importantly, the ongoing governance will be proportionate to your size of business, thereby reducing the operational workload on internal staff.

  • Reduce risk from cyber threats.
  • Gain customer reassurance.
  • Reduce operational workload.
  • Increase your reputation.

How we support CyberWyse certification

We take you through three steps to achieve your new, certified and insured SME cyber security position:

On the scoping call, we will discuss and confirm:

  • The work package, the process and the logistics
  • The stakeholders to be interviewed
  • Whether you have any existing security documents (copies required for review)

During the on-site visit, we will:

  • Review your current security approach (interviews as agreed at the scoping call)
  • Carry out a high-level network review and a vulnerability scan of your system.

Our off-site tests and checks will be conducted back at Ascentor’s Gloucester office. We will:

  • Review your security approach against the IASME standard
  • Carry out remote scans and email tests
  • Produce a report with a roadmap of activities

The two days of consultancy support is flexible and tailored to help you implement the roadmap in preparation for the audits.

When you are ready for the audit, we will check your self-assessed IASME submission and arrange for the onsite CE PLUS audit. Your certificates will follow a successful audit.
