Maps to The Government’s 10 steps to cyber security & NIS Directive

The audited IASME Governance standard is IASME’s highest level of certification and is an excellent alternative to ISO 27001 for small and medium sized organisations

The standard includes all of the five Cyber Essentials technical topics and adds additional topics that mostly relate to people and processes, for example:

Risk assessment and management

Monitoring

Change management

Training and managing people

Backup

Incident response and business continuity

By gaining the Audited IASME Governance certificate your organisation is achieving IASME’s highest level of certification and providing assurance to customers and suppliers that your organisation’s security has been audited by a skilled, independent third-party.

WHERE IS THE IASME GOVERNANCE AUDITED STANDARD USED?

The procurement teams of many large companies will accept the IASME Governance Audited standard as independent confirmation of good information and cyber security practice.

This is extremely useful when trying to win tenders and renew contracts, particularly where supplier requirements mention ISO 27001.

For example, The Government of Jersey is one organisation that has specified IASME Governance Standard within its security standards document.

HOW IS THE ASSESSMENT CARRIED OUT?

RENEWAL

The audited certification is renewed at the end of years 1 and 2 by simply renewing the online IASME Governance assessment.

At the end of year 3 a full audit, as described above, is required again to renew the certification.
