The verified assessment is carried out online using IASME’s secure portal where organisations are required to answer around 160 short questions about their security.
You will get access to the portal immediately after paying for the assessment and have up to six months to complete the answers.
The answers are saved automatically by the system.
Once the answers have been provided, the assessment is marked by one of IASME’s Certification Bodies and usually a pass/fail is returned to the organisation within 72 hours.
There is a prerequisite to applying for IASME Cyber Assurance; you must hold a valid Cyber Essentials certificate throughout your IASME Cyber Assurance certification.
