Supporting Certification

Demonstrate you care about protecting data

Whitgift Security is an IASME & Cyber Essentials Certification body.

To get Cyber Essentials and/or IASME Governance certification, organisations need to complete a questionnaire. This poses a series of questions about the IT security measures you take to protect your business. Many organisations, especially SMEs who don’t have a qualified Information Security Officer, can find it challenging to:-
a) understand how they can cost-efficiently meet the requirements of the standard and
b) answer the questions describing how they have implemented the necessary measures.

Let Whitgift Security help you through the process.


This service is perfect if you are not sure you that understand the qualifying questions – and even if you have started on the journey need a small amount of help.
A certified security professional will work with you on completing your submission. We will walk you through the questionnaire, ensuring you understand the questions, talk about your current replies and provide advice on any necessary remediation.
Following remediation we will review questions set once more before you submit.

Certification Fee : Cyber Essential £300+VAT and IASME £400+VAT
