The IASME Cyber Baseline assessment consists of a verified assessment questionnaire which must be answered on the assessment platform after registering for certification. A senior member of the board or equivalent from your organisation must e-sign a document to verify that all the answers are true and then a qualified external Assessor will mark the answers. Organisations have 6 months from the date of application to pass the assessment and attain certification.
Prepare – Register – Pay – Complete – Certify
You can download the assessment questions free of charge before you certify. It is a good idea to prepare your answers in advance on a working document or spreadsheet which you can copy onto the assessment platform when you are ready. When you wish to apply, register for certification and make a payment.

Once your application and payment have been received, you will receive your online assessment portal log-in details so that you can enter your answers into the on-line assessment platform.
It is possible to cut and paste your answers from the preparation spreadsheet onto the assessment platform, but your completed answers on a spreadsheet will not be accepted for assessment. The questions address the scope of the assessment and the cyber security measures around 8 themes. These include organisation structure, asset management, secure architecture, people management, access control, technical intrusion, back up and restore and resilience. You do not have to complete all of your answers at once – you can save them as you go along.
Please note there is a time limit of 6 months from when you purchase your assessment account to completing the assessment. Once you have submitted your assessment for marking, your Assessor may send you feedback. You then have 2 working days to address any feedback.
Once you submit your answers, it will usually take 2 – 3 days to get the result back to you. If you have a tight deadline for certification, then please let us know and we will do our best to help you meet it.
