The Cyber Essentials Documentation Toolkit

Cyber Essentials is a UK government information assurance scheme designed to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber security threats. Operated by the National Cyber Security Centre, the scheme encourages organisations to adopt best practice in information security in order to demonstrate their commitment to cyber security.

Built on our extensive experience and expert knowledge gained from implementing cyber security projects for thousands of companies in a range of industries, our toolkit is aligned with the cyber essentials scheme (CES). It includes all the necessary work procedures and processes for ensuring that the controls you are implementing are effective in delivering what they intend to do.

These processes will help your organisation move to the next level of cyber security and ensure that the required controls are implemented effectively.

The most important aspect of your CES documentation is that it must be your own work and in your own words. You will need to complete the documents in the toolkit to reflect your organisational culture, your processes and your technologies.

This toolkit is compatible with Office 2016, 2013, 2010. If you use one of these Office versions on a MAC, or are using an older version of Office, please contact us.

Technical information

Technical Specifications

  • This toolkit is available for immediate download. After purchasing, you will receive an email with a download link.
  • We provide a free 12-month update service*, ensuring that you get all updates with any improvements and changes that we make. We really value your feedback and it’s vital to help us develop our toolkits, so please do get in touch and let us know how we can improve them.
  • We provide an unlimited drafting support service, which includes help setting up, customising and using the templates and support interpreting the document structure.
  • Drafting support does not extend to consultancy and implementation advice, as the toolkit is a project resource, not an out-of-the-box solution. Documentation toolkits, like a standard or regulation, are designed to be used by organisations of all types and sizes. Organisations may need to develop specific content relevant to their internal processes and activities.
  • This toolkit is compatible with Office 2016, 2013, 2010. If you use one of these Office versions on a MAC, or are using an older version of Office, please contact us.

* Updates based on new editions of a Standard or Regulation are not included.


What is a documentation toolkit?

Most management system, compliance and certification projects require documented policies, procedures and work instructions. ITGP toolkits are a comprehensive resource, designed and field-tested to meet specific documentation requirements.

A toolkit is a collection of customisable templates written by industry experts to help you produce documentation that meets the requirements of your chosen management system standard, compliance or certification project.

Why would I want a documentation toolkit?

Our documentation toolkits are designed to minimise the time and money that an organisation spends writing and developing the documents themselves.

How do I access my toolkit after purchase?

After purchasing you will receive two emails – one is a receipt for your purchase and the second will contain the download instructions for your toolkit. Please do remember to check your junk folder. Your download will come in a .zip file which you can download straight to your computer. Alternatively, you can access the download link by visiting the ‘view order history’ section of your account.

Will it work in my organisation?

Our documentation toolkits are suitable for organisations of any type or size, whether they are in the public or private sector, and contain the necessary documentation templates and tools for your implementation project. While some document templates may not initially be relevant within the scope of your project, they may prove valuable over time as your business grows.

Is the toolkit a software product that I need to install?

No, it is not a software product that you need to install. However, the documents use a certified macro that enables you to set document classification levels and to quickly fill in certain repetitive fields throughout the documentation templates, such as your company logo, name and address. Our code has a signed certificate verifying that we are the publishers.
