The information is then submitted for a qualified assessor to verify the answers provided. Successful completion of this stage entitles you to display the Cyber Essentials logo on your website. 

Cyber Essentials Plus – a higher level of assurance. A qualified and independent assessor examines the same five controls, testing that they work in practice by simulating basic hacking and phishing attacks.
