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 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.
The assessment is available as a verified self-assessment or an on-site audit.
