Cyber Essentials & Security Readiness Assessment Services

External expertise to advise on protecting your organisation against the growing threats of cyber attacks.

The costs of breaches are increasing

The Direct cost, the Recovery cost and the Long-term cost of security breaches are growing year-on-year . And we know that the prevalence and sophistication of cyber-attacks are also on the rise. AdEPT provides multiple products, services and solutions to protect organisations.


Alongside these our Security Readiness Assessment consulting services provide a gap analysis and insight into potential vulnerabilities.


The ADEPT Cyber Essentials and Security Readiness Assessments services prepare customers for Cyber Essentials certifications or simply provide a security audit for organisations through a choice of:


  • An initial one day pre-assessment of the environment
  • A security readiness assessment, including hands-on help through the certification process

One Day Pre-Assessment Service

Your organisation wants to achieve Cyber Essentials, or Cyber Essentials Plus, but isn’t familiar with what’s involved. You may also need advice on what Cyber Essentials covers and how that relates to your own environment so that you can draw up a plan of action to achieve certification and also identify the work, and any possible additional solutions, to budget the time, costs and actions in getting ready.


On completion of the readiness assessment a customer will have the information needed to prepare for Cyber Essentials and, following the recommendations, create and follow an action plan and then submit their environment for certification.

The One Day Pre-Assessment Service is also an ideal service to take a customer through an initial scoping of their existing security environment and their security objectives as a precursor for a more detailed audit and set of recommendations as defined by our Security Readiness Assessment service.

Security Readiness Assessment Service

An organisation has either undertaken a pre-assessment and identified that additional help will be needed or, from the outset, wants to engage and get more involved help to achieve certification or simply uplift their security environment against the increasing modern day threats.

The customer may also wish to put Cyber Essentials in the context of
wider information security and would like high level advice on areas, which go beyond Cyber Essentials, into wider security Governance.
