IASME Cyber Assurance | Cyber Security Services


Cyber Assurance

Demonstrate your commitment to cyber security with a government-backed standard.

The IASME Cyber Assurance standard was developed as part of a government-funded project to create an affordable and achievable alternative to ISO 27001.

Achieving ISO 27001 can run into the tens of thousands of pounds. Cyber Assurance allows you to demonstrate to your clients your cyber security standard and shows that you are taking steps to secure your customer’s sensitive data.

• Organisation• People• Backup and restore
• Assets• Policy realisation• Secure business operations
• Legal and regulatory landscape• Managing access• Resilience
• Assessing and treating risks

How Do We Achieve Accreditation?

IASME Cyber Assurance Level 1 is a self-assessed questionnaire where we provide access to an online portal where you can complete the questionnaire in your own time. Once you submit your answers, we review your submission and schedule a feedback call to discuss any non-compliance issues.

IASME Cyber Assurance Level 2 usually involves interviews with members of staff and a review of documentation and system configuration. It does not involve a technical assessment unless you are being assessed for Cyber Essentials Plus at the same time.

We may need to visit branch offices or other locations in order to satisfy themselves that your good security practice is reflected across the organisation.

Our team of experts can provide bespoke consultancy services to assist your team in meeting and maintaining the high standard of security required.

With our expert advice, you’ll pass first time.
