IASME Governance

A straightforward and cost effective alternative to ISO 27001

IASME Governance is risk a based certification that was developed in partnership with the UK Government with SMEs in mind.

It is awarded to organisations that can demonstrate, through the completion of a self assessment questionnaire, that they’ve got effective information governance measures in place.  It covers key aspects of security – such as IT security controls, incident response, staff training, planning and operations.

The standard incorporates the Cyber Essentials question set, so you’ll receive both certifications at the same time for no extra cost. 

IASME Governance is also the only standard to include an optional GDPR question that will demonstrate you’ve taken key steps towards GDPR compliance.
