The IASME standard has been developed over several years as a Technology Strategy Board funded project to create an achievable cyber security standard for small companies.
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 demonstrates baseline compliance with the international standard.
IASME, at a realistic cost, allows SMEs in a supply chain to demonstrate their level of cyber security and that they are able to properly protect their own and their customers’ information. Achieving IASME certification can also form a strong foundation for companies wishing to undergo certification to ISO27001 as part of a longer term security strategy.
OmniCyber Security have been appointed as an independent auditor by the IASME Consortium for the IASME standard for those companies that wish to demonstrate a higher level of commitment to cyber security, rather than following the self-assessment route. IASME is a realistic and affordable way for SMEs to prove that they are following best security practice.
