Do you have to have a vulnerability test in order to pass Cyber Essentials?

On Question 40 of the practice paper, it says – when was the last time you had a vulnerability test? – I have not had one, so must i have one before completing the live questionnaire?

Hi Alastair, it is not a formal requirement of the scheme to have a a vulnerability scan.  If you go for Cyber Essentials Plus, you will receive a scan as part of the audit.  But in either case, I would strongly advise you look into using the Microsoft Security Baseline Analyzer – it’s a really easy to use free tool that can help you understand where there are still issues you weren’t aware of in your technical infrastructure.
