IASME Governance Standard

The IASME Governance standard, based on international best practice, is risk-based and includes aspects such as physical security, staff awareness, and data backup. It 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 assessment includes a Cyber Essentials assessment and GDPR requirements, which is available either as a self-assessment or on-site audit.

The 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 standard allows small companies 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.
