Are you working towards Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus at your UK organisation? Or perhaps you are in the initial stages of information gathering and would benefit from further guidance.

This live Cyber Essentials (CE) online clinic gives you the opportunity to ask questions and have them answered, provide feedback on any areas that are problematic, as well as share your CE(+) journey with other organisations. 

They generally run on the first Monday of each month.

These clinics do not replace consultations with your chosen provider or accreditor but should be a useful additional route for one-off questions or issues of wider relevance.

Session topics and leads

We'll take questions on any CE topic during each session, but each session will be lead by a member of the team with CE experience.


  • Share your experiences with like-minded people at different stages of the accreditation process
  • Gain feedback and support on any areas that may have been problematic
  • Suggestions to ‘what’s in scope’ questions directly from the expert

Joining the clinic

This clinic will be run in Teams, which you can access using the Teams app or directly via your browser.

You'll also need a headset or headphones and a microphone.

Who should attend

Anyone from a UK-based organisation who is thinking about gaining CE accreditation, in the process of CE or CE+ and needs some further clarity, or is looking to renew their CE accreditation. 

What we cover

The clinic is discussion based and relies on participation. You'll get answers to specific technical, administrative and policy issues you are experiencing either during the session or the team will follow up after the session.
