The Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME) Governance standard was developed in order to create a cyber security standard which would be both an affordable and achievable alternative to the international standard, ISO27001.
Why is it so important?
The IASME Governance standard allows an SME in a supply chain to demonstrate their level of cybersecurity, at a realistic cost and indicates that the SME is able to follow best practice in the protection of their customers' information.
The IASME Governance assessment includes Cyber Essentials with an optional assessment against the GDPR requirements.
We can support SMEs through the application process.
