IASME was founded on the principle that basic cyber security is an essential requirement for all organisations and their supply chains. We believe this requirement should not be a barrier to the smallest of organisation and the innovation they bring.
IASME believes in inclusivity and representation across every level of the company. Our diverse work team allows us to innovate and deliver in a comprehensive and relevant way. The company is headed by a female CEO and 50% of the organisation are women, with women represented in every team. Over 20% of IASME employees identify as neurodivergent and more than 35% of the IASME team have a disability. IASME work closely with the UK Cyber Security Forum to train unemployed neurodivergent adults and support them into work.
Our history is a story of innovation and rapid growth. It all started with the IASME Governance standard which was motivated by the need for something accessible to help small organisations understand a framework to increase their chance of staying safe online. The IASME Consortium was created in 2012 to take the results of that project forward.
Today, IASME offers six different certifications and delivers to organisations of all sizes and in all sectors.
In October 2021, IASME was acquired by the Phenna Group. Headquartered in Nottingham, Phenna Group’s aim is to invest and partner with selected niche, independent testing, inspection, certification and compliance (TICC) companies that serve a variety of sectors, ensuring customers’ peace of mind by delivering first class assurance services. This large and dynamic group provides the resilience, support and global outlook for IASME to continue to grow.
