The Information Assurance for Small & Medium Enterprise (IASME) certification standard was developed over several years during a Technology Strategy Board funded project to create an achievable cyber security standard for small companies. The standard is risk based and includes aspects such as physical security, staff awareness, and data back up. The international standard, ISO27001, is comprehensive but extremely challenging for a small company to achieve and maintain. The IASME standard is written along the same lines as the ISO27001 but specifically for small companies. The gold standard of IASME certification demonstrates baseline compliance with the international standard.
Available either as a self-assessment or assisted assessment by Telkeda, the IASME certification is a realistic and affordable way for businesses and local government to prove to their customers and supply chain that they are following cyber best practice.
The certification includes cyber liability insurance (terms apply) with prices starting from £400 plus VAT for the self-assessment. The pre-assessment questionnaire is free and available for DOWNLOAD HERE.
