Key IASME Governance Requirements

Certification is awarded if you can demonstrate, through the completion of the Self Assessment Questionnaire, that you have robust Information Assurance processes in place.

Should you wish to demonstrate your GDPR Readiness, you’ll also need to answer a GDPR Readiness question set.

It also incorporates questions regarding 5 key information security measures as follows:

  •  Malware protection – the use of appropriate anti-virus software

  • Patch management – having the necessary processes in place to update software

  • Access control – restricting software access to those who need it

  • Secure configuration – setting your systems up securely

  • Boundary firewalls – preventing unauthorised systems access


Basic IASME Governance Certification is awarded when an organisation completes a Self Assessment Questionnaire that complies with the requirements of the standard.

It is then possible to obtain Certified IASME Governance if the questions you submit are then independently audited.  You can be awarded BRONZE, SILVER or GOLD levels of IASME Certified based on the outcome of the independent audit.
