The IASME Governance standard was developed over several years during a government 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 customers information.
The IASME Governance standard, based on international best practice, is risk-based and includes aspects such as physical security, staff awareness, and data backup. The IASME standard was recently recognised as the best cyber security standard for small companies by the UK Government when in consultation with trade associations and industry groups. The IASME governance self assessment includes the Cyber Essentials assessment within it.
IASME has enhanced its award-winning information security governance assessment to incorporate GDPR Ready.
The IASME Governance standard which is risk based and follows the lines of international best practice, covers key information assurance aspects such as business continuity, incident management, staff awareness and data backup. The assessment question set now includes optional questions which review your companies processes and procedures against the requirements of GDPR. Once you have been certified against the standard you can demonstrate this to your clients through the ‘GDPR Ready’ logo.
