The Cyberesponse label is an identification element enabling companies to prove that the necessary measures have been taken to secure their IT systems and data. It is drawn up by cybersecurity experts and is based on the best practices recommended by European cybersecurity institutions.

The main objectives of the Cyberesponse Label are to highlight the company's commitments to protecting its sensitive data, to reinforce the company's security posture, and to promote best practices in cybersecurity while fostering the confidence of business partners and customers.

Obtaining the Cyberesponse Label offers companies a number of benefits, including independent validation of their level of security, recognition in the marketplace, enhanced reputation and a demonstration of their commitment to data protection.

The Cyberesponse Label is open to all companies, whatever their sector of activity or size. It is designed to be accessible to small businesses and up to large organizations.

The Cyberesponse Label guidelines are drawn up by cybersecurity experts. They cover various areas such as governance, risk management, data protection, threat monitoring, incident response, employee awareness, etc.

The requirements for obtaining the Cyberesponse Label are defined in the label's guide. They include criteria for risk management, data protection, security governance, awareness-raising and training.

The approach for obtaining the Cyberesponse Label involves a number of stages: awareness of the challenges of cybersecurity, acquisition of the label’s guide, application of the recommendations and measures detailed in the guide, application for certification, an audit of the company's security practices by approved auditors, evaluation of the audit results to validate compliance, and finally award of the label.

The Cyberesponse Label certification audit is carried out once the company's IS security has been brought into line with the recommendations of the guide. Companies that consider themselves compliant with the recommendations of the standards call on an approved auditor to carry out an audit according to the desired level of certification (Committed, Qualified or Certified). This audit includes an in-depth review of the company's security practices, interviews with the auditor, and an assessment of security policies and procedures, as well as measures to protect sensitive data.

The Cyberesponse Label is valid for one year for the Committed level, and two years for the Qualified and Certified levels. At the end of this period, the company can renew its certification by requesting a new certification audit. This limited timeframe enables us to keep the security levels in tune with the rapid evolution of threats. 

The costs associated with obtaining the Cyberesponse Label can vary depending on the size and complexity of the company, as well as the specific requirements of the labeling level. These costs include the acquisition fees for the reference guide, the audit mission fees, and the fees associated with periodic renewal.

The Cyberesponse Label aims to achieve European recognition. This recognition will depend on the agreements and partnerships established by the label with other certification authorities.

The Cyberesponse Label is generally not mandatory, but it may be strongly recommended or required by cybersecurity insurance companies, business partners or customers to establish trust and credibility in cybersecurity matters.

The Cyberesponse Label differs from other cybersecurity certifications not only in its concrete, step-by-step approach, but also in its accessibility to small and medium-sized businesses. Aware of the diversity of structures and resources available, the label is designed to be adapted to companies of different sizes and levels of cybersecurity maturity. It proposes a step-by-step approach, enabling each company to start at the level that suits them best, and follow a staged path to reinforce their security posture as they go along. This accessible approach makes the Cyber Compliance Label particularly well-suited to the needs and constraints of small and medium-sized businesses, offering them an opportunity to comply with security requirements and effectively protect their sensitive data.

This label constitutes the basic security foundation for the company, and is a gateway to standards and regulations, such as: NIS2, NIST, RGPD, ISO 27000, nLPD Switzerland.

Il est essentiel de noter que l’obtention du label Cyberesponse ne se substitue pas à l’obtention des normes citées précédemment.

The Cyber Compliance Label is not a 100% guarantee of your company's security. It certifies that your company has implemented security measures in line with the label's requirements, providing a solid foundation for strengthening the protection of your data and IT infrastructure. However, it's important to stress that cybersecurity is a constantly evolving field, with new threats emerging regularly. As a result, it's essential to maintain ongoing vigilance and constantly adapt your security measures to deal with new vulnerabilities. In addition, it's important to note that the Cyber Compliance Label does not cover all aspects of RGPD (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance, and other regulations may require specific additional measures.

To check whether a company has been awarded the Cyberesponse Label you can ask the company to show you its certificate of conformity issued by the label.
