The IASME Cyber Assurance 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 other international standards.
This allows small and medium enterprises 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.
A wide range of UK and International industry sectors now accept the Level 2 audited IASME Cyber Assurance certification as an alternative to other international standards. Examples are the UK Ministry of Justice and the Government of Jersey. This is a significant step towards reducing barriers to entry for smaller organisations in a supply chain as IASME Cyber Assurance gives SMEs a legitimate way to prove their compliance.
The IASME Cyber Assurance certification includes GDPR requirements and is available in two levels: Level 1 Verified Assessment and Level 2 Audited. There is a prerequisite to applying for IASME Cyber Assurance; you must hold a valid Cyber Essentials certificate throughout your IASME Cyber Assurance certification.
