IASME Certification

The industry-standard cybersecurity certificate for Small and Medium Enterprises.
What Is The IASME Scheme?
What Is The IASME Scheme?

The IASME Scheme was developed for small and medium businesses for whom the ISO27001 was too complex or too expensive to obtain. The IASME Certification Scheme is devised along the same lines as the ISO27001 but aimed at SMEs. The certification covers your organisation’s five environments that are covered in the Cyber Essentials Certification.

  • Boundary firewalls and internet gateways.
  • Secure device and network configuration.
  • Control over who can access your network.
  • Malware protection against cyber attacks.
  • Updated devices and programs on your network.
And also:
  • Risk assessment and management.
  • Proper security training and management of current staff.
  • Protocols and management for changing circumstances or programs.
  • Continuous monitoring for potential threats or weaknesses.
  • Secure and continuous backup of data and assets.
  • Incident response and business continuity

Do I Need The IASME Certification?

The IASME certification demonstrates to companies you do business with that your organisation’s cyber-security is a step above the industry standard. It is especially powerful for companies bidding for government contracts as it shows just how serious your organisation is about protecting your network from cyber threats.

Organisations who want to demonstrate that they are implementing more detailed cyber-security measures than the Cyber Essentials Scheme can do so with the IASME certification. The IASME certification is similar to the ISO27001 but scaled for SME companies, giving your organisation in-depth and detailed cyber-security.

The Two Levels of Certification

There are two levels of certification: the IASME Self Assessment Certification and IASME Audited, sometimes called IASME Gold, that is audited by a cyber-security company such as Gaia Technologies PLC.

IASME Self Assessment
The basic IASME Self-Assessment allows organisations to utilise their in-house staff to complete the industry-supported assessment. This is the most cost-effective and time-saving option for organisations.
IASME Gold
The IASME Audited/Gold certification assesses the organisation’s security network through an on-site audit by an independent cyber-security professional, and demonstrates that your company has reached the highest level of information governance certification.
