We aim to have all Cyber Essentials certifications completed within five business days of receiving the completed questionnaire, and Cyber Essentials Plus within eight days.
Can we just get Cyber Essential Plus?
To achieve CE Plus, you need to have been certified to Cyber Essentials within the previous three months.
How long does certification last?
Both standards expire 12 months after certification.
