NEED SUPPORT WITH YOUR ASSESSMENT?

Some of the Cyber Essentials self-assessment questions can be difficult to understand if you do not have a technical IT background or you have a complex company structure. IASME has trained a number of qualified cyber security companies who will be able to help you understand the assessment questions, how they relate to your company and what steps you need to take in order to achieve certification. These Certification Bodies are trained and licensed to certify against the Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme and they are also available to offer consulting services to help you achieve these certifications.

If you apply for an assessment via the website then an assessor from one of the Certification Bodies will be allocated automatically at the point of assessment. Alternatively you can engage with one of our Certification Bodies and they may be able to provide you with more support in the assessment process.
