Move security in the right direction

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.

By gaining the Audited IASME Governance certificate your organisation is achieving IASME’s highest level of certification and providing assurance to customers and suppliers that your organisation’s security has been audited by a skilled, independent third-party. (SMP Risk Managed).

SMP Risk Managed has a team of qualified professionals to help you achieve this level of certification at an affordable price.

The standard includes all of the five Cyber Essentials technical topics and adds additional topics that mostly relate to people and processes, for example:

  • Risk assessment and management
  • Training and managing people
  • Change management
  • Monitoring
  • Backup
  • Incident response and business continuity

How is the assessment carried out?

In order to achieve IASME Governance Audited standard, you must first pass the IASME Governance 
self-assessment, this includes Cyber Essentials certification. SMP Risk Managed will then scope out your corporate environment for you to allow swift implementation and certification to the highest standards.

IASME Governance Standard takes your organisation to the next level of security and covers similar topics to ISO27001 in a practical manner.

Audited IASME Governance (also known as IASME Gold) is an independent on-site audit of the level of information security provided by your organisation. It offers a similar level of assurance to the internationally recognised ISO27001 standard, but is simpler and often cheaper for small and medium sized organisations to implement.
