Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between the Cyber Essentials scheme and the IASME Governance scheme.


The Cyber Essentials Scheme is a Government scheme that helps organisations to guard against the most common cyber threats from the internet and demonstrate commitment to cyber security. It covers five main technical controls which will protect companies against an estimated 80% of common internet threats. The controls are: * Secure your Internet connection (Firewalls and routers) * Secure your devices and software (Secure configuration) * Control access to your data and services (Access control) * Protect from viruses and other malware (Malware protection) * Keep your devices and software up to date (Software updates) IASME Governance certification is aligned to the Government’s Ten Steps to Cyber Security and includes Cyber Essentials certification as well as controls around people and processes. It also covers the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements. IASME Governance is aligned to a similar set of controls to ISO 27001 but is more affordable and achievable for small and medium sized organisations to implement.




How does IASME Governance map to other standards including ISO 27001?


IASME have mapped IASME Governance to a variety of standards including ISO 27001. For more information please click here.




What is the IASME Governance standard?


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, ISO 27001. The IASME Governance standard allows the small companies in a supply chain to demonstrate their level of cyber security for a realistic cost and indicates that they are taking good steps to properly protect their customers’ information. The IASME Governance assessment includes a Cyber Essentials assessment and GDPR requirements and is available either as a self assessment or on-site audit.




What is IASME Governance self assessment?


Based on international best practice, IASME Governance is risk based and includes key aspects of security such as incident response, staff training, planning and operations. IASME Governance incorporates Cyber Essentials assessment and an assessment against the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

What is IASME Governance Audited?


The IASME Governance Audit involves an on-site audit of your governance processes and procedures covered by the IASME Governance standard. IASME Governance Audited (sometimes 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 ISO 27001 standard but is simpler and often cheaper for small and medium-sized organisations to implement.
