IASME Governance

The IASME Governance standard allows the small companies in a supply chain to demonstrate their level of cyber security and that they are taking good steps to properly protect their customers’ information. The IASME Governance assessment includes a Cyber Essentials assessment and GDPR requirements.

What we do

There are two levels of certification, IASME Governance and IASME Governance Audited

IASME Governance

This is a self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) through the form of an online portal. The SAQ consists of around 160 questions about your security and controls including:

  • Risk Assessments
  • Backups
  • Policies
  • Incident Management
  • Data Protection
  • Operational Management

You will have up to six months to complete the answers. Upon submitting your answers, one of our experts will mark the SAQ. we will then arrange a suitable time to discuss any failing points or to let you know you were successful.

IASME Governance Audited 

For audited, we will discuss with you the scope of the assessment and a convenient time to carry out an audit of your policies and process. The audit usually involves interviews with members of staff and a review of documentation and system configuration.

Renewals

The Self-Assessment is renewed annually. 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.
