25th July 2022 Update FAQs

From 25th July 2022 IASME Cyber Assurance (v12) will replace IASME Governance (v11d).

The updated version of the standard has been rewritten to align better with modern usage of technology and business practices, and has been renamed accordingly to help people to better understand its purpose. The standard still offers the same comprehensive coverage of information security controls and retains its mappings to other external standards such as ISO 27001. The mappings will be updated accordingly and made available on our website.

When do the changes come into effect?

The new version of IASME Governance, renamed IASME Cyber Assurance, will be previewed on 25th April 2022 and released on 25th July 2022. Any assessments that begin on or after the 25th July 2022  will be certifying to the new standard. 

What happens if I start the process before 25th July 2022?

Any assessments that begin before July will be certifying to the current technical standard (IASME Governance standard v5, available on this page). These assessments will have 6 months from application date to complete.

I’m currently in the process of completing my assessment, will the questions now change?

No, if you started your assessment before 25th July 2022 then the question set and requirements will not change. You will have up to 6 months to complete that assessment.

Can I choose which question set or requirements to be assessed against?
