The Cyber Essentials Requirements has released version 3.1, which will be used to assess all Cyber Essentials certifications starting from 24 April 2023. This update features several clarifications and new guidance and is part of the scheme’s regular review of technical controls to help UK organizations guard against common cyber threats.
Feedback from assessors and applicants, as well as input from technical experts from the NCSC, informed the changes. IASME will also provide more guidance documents, including articles to help applicants understand the questions and access to a dedicated knowledge base. These resources will be available in the upcoming months.
