CYBER ESSENTIALS

Created

Hi

We obtained the Cyber Essentials accreditation in 2021 as it was then an E.S.F.A requirement,we are now due for renewal at the end of this month.

Other providers have told me its no longer an E.S.F.A. requirement,but I cant find any guidance out there.Can anyone please advise ?

Thanks

Chris
