IASME Cyber Baseline

IASME Cyber Baseline is a new international cyber hygiene certification scheme that tackles the basic, but critical, cyber security protection measures. The standard leads the way to offer global supply chains a standardised and respected certification to show that organisations have the critical cyber hygiene measures in place.

IASME Cyber Baseline maps to a number of international cyber hygiene standards and best practices, to which there has formerly been no way of demonstrating compliance because they do not have assessments and certification associated with them.

The scheme is an important first step for many organisations in proving that they are serious about cyber security. It is a pre-requisite to the next step of certifying to the comprehensive risk based and policy driven standard, IASME Cyber Assurance.

The Benefits of Certification

Demonstrate that your organisation aligns with global cyber hygiene and cyber security frameworks* (*such as Cobit, CIS Controls v8)

Take the first important step towards IASME Cyber Assurance certification which will open doors to procurement frameworks, allowing your organisation to compete for contracts

The 8 themes of IASME Cyber Baseline

The IASME Cyber Baseline scheme allows every size of organisation in every sector to start their cyber security journey with simple cyber security measures along 8 themes. As organisations increase their maturity, they may choose to continue developing their security posture towards including the full 13 themes of IASME Cyber Assurance.
