You need to get nearly all the questions right (compliant) to pass the Cyber Essentials assessment. You do need to be controlling all these aspects of your system to be certified. This very strict pass criteria is set by the UK Government. If you are not compliant in some of the questions we suggest you try and change your processes to meet the requirement and certainly add notes to explain why you are not compliant in this aspect and how else you control that risk.

You will get a pdf of all the answers you gave and comments from the assessor against any that were considered non-compliant.

If you fail we allow you two working days to examine the feedback from the assessor and change any simple issues with your network and policies. You can then update your answers and the assessor will have another look without any extra charges. However, if you still fail after these two days you will have to reapply and pay the assessment fee again.

You currently do need to re-enter all the information again and the questions have been updated and so have changed a bit (hopefully improved). However, you can copy and paste the majority of your answers from last years submission if you have not changed things in your company over the previous year.  Please remember to keep a copy of your answers when you submit so you can work with them when you re-certify the following year.
