Our Schemes

IASME is the sole delivery partner for the National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) Cyber Essentials scheme and Cyber Advisor scheme.

We are also one of two Delivery Partners for the NCSC Industry Assurance schemes, Cyber Incident Exercising and Cyber Incident Response Level 2. In this role, we are responsible for the assessment and onboarding process to ensure that each provider meets the NCSC’s rigorous security and quality standards for cyber incident exercising and response.

IASME runs a further five independent cyber security certification schemes for organisations, marine vessels, and IoT devices, and through these schemes, have made a considerable impact to the security of the UK.

National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Schemes

Cyber Essentials is the UK Government approved certification scheme. The scheme is centred around five core controls that if implemented correctly, will protect any organisation from the majority of the most common cyber attacks.

The Cyber Advisor scheme provides small and medium sized organisations with reliable and cost effective cyber security advice and practical support.

Cyber Incident Response (CIR) Level 2 is an industry assurance scheme that was created to help organisations that have been a victim of a cyber attack.

The Cyber Incident Exercising (CIE) scheme was created to assist organisations in finding an assured provider to help them test their cyber incident response plans and make improvements before a cyber attack occurs.

IASME Cyber Security Certification Schemes

IASME Cyber Baseline is an international cyber hygiene certification scheme that tackles the basic, but critical, cyber security protection measures for organisations outside the UK.

IASME Cyber Assurance is IASMEs flagship information security standard previously known as IASME Governance. Designed with small and medium sized enterprises in mind, it provides assurance that important cyber security, privacy, and data protection measures are in place.

IASME IoT Cyber Baseline certifies internet connected devices against the most important security controls and demonstrates compliance to the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Act 2022.

IASME IoT Cyber Assurance certifies internet connected devices to a higher standard of cyber security. The scheme aligns with UK legislation and all of the 13 provisions in the ETSI EN 303 645 standard, extending beyond just the top three required for UK law.

The Maritime Cyber Baseline scheme is designed to certify the cyber security of commercial vessels and is accessible to operators and vessels of all sizes from across the world.

The Civil Aviation Authority's ASSURE scheme provides the aviation industry with an audit mechanism to review and manage the cyber security risks within the sector via a network of Cyber Suppliers.
