IASME

Defined Policies and Procedures can help get you to the other side of an incident

What is IASME?

The IASME Governance standard was developed over several years during a Technology Strategy Board funded project to create a cyber security standard which would be an affordable and achievable alternative to the international standard, ISO27001.
The IASME Governance standard allows the small companies in a supply chain to demonstrate their level of cyber security for a realistic cost and indicates that they are taking good steps to properly protect their customer’s information.
The IASME Governance assessment includes a Cyber Essentials assessment and is available either as a self-assessment or on-site audit. Since the 1st March 2017, it has also included an optional assessment against the GDPR requirements.

Why Should Companies Get IASME?

By contrast to the Cyber Essentials certification, the IASME Accreditation tests the processes and procedures that companies employ when dealing with data and systems to ensure that your business is able to protect and recover data if needed.
IASME Accreditation now also includes an optional question set which tests your businesses readiness for the release of the General Data Protection Regulation which is due to come into force on 25th May 2018 and will have large penalties for non-compliance.
Having an IASME Badge will
• Ensure that your business has the right processes in place to prevent data incidents
• Ensure that your business is able to survive a cyber-attack and any other disaster
• Show your customers you and your staff take this issue seriously
