The Cyber Essentials scheme was introduced by the UK Government in 2014 as a way to help make the UK the safest place to do business.

As the scheme has evolved over time, the original flat fee pricing structure has not kept in line with the effort required to assess applications for compliance with the standard. For this reason, NCSC are introducing tiered pricing for Cyber Essentials based on the size of the organisation:

  • Micro (0-9 staff): £300
  • Small (10-49 staff): £400
  • Medium (50-249 staff): £450
  • Large (250+ staff): £500
