 +=====Cybersecurity accreditations =====
 +
 +You might want an accreditation โ€” essentially,​ a third party'​s assertion that your cybersecurity measures meet some defined standards โ€” for your cybersecurity preparations.
 +
 +This might be because doing so helps you attain a higher standard than you would reach with your own preparations,​ or else you want an attestation of your security from a third party.
 +
 +====Options for accreditation ====
 +
 +===ISO 27001 (International)===
 +
 +ISO 27001 is an internationally-recognised information security standard, focussed on the implementation of an information security management system.
 +
 +A [[https://​www.iso.org/​standard/​54534.html|copy of the standard]] is approximately ยฃ100.
 +
 +Attaining ISO 27001 is likely to need third party support, and will probably cost several thousand pounds.
 +
 +===Cyber Essentials (UK) ===
 +
 +A scheme promoted by the UK government, [[https://​www.cyberessentials.ncsc.gov.uk|Cyber Essentials]] is a basic information security accreditation focussed on [[https://​www.cyberessentials.ncsc.gov.uk/​requirements-for-it-infrastructure|five areas]]. It costs approximately ยฃ300 + VAT.
 +
 +It is a self-assessed scheme. If you wanted more assurance, it has a second tier, Cyber Essentials Plus, which requires independent verification.
