The IASME Cyber Assurance Standard, previously known as the IASME Governance Standard, is a risk based information security framework which has been developed for small and medium businesses. The standard is also based around risk and asset management, Cyber Essentials, privacy and data protection to name a few areas.
The Standard has been developed to not only help businesses work to protect themselves, but is also mapped against ISO 27001 to help businesses adhere to industry best practices.
Previously the IASME Governance certification came with Cyber Essentials as part of the certification, now however you must first achieve and have a valid Cyber Essentials certification before applying for IASME Cyber Assurance.
