Align with GDPR and data privacy controls

The IASME Cyber Assurance standard offers a low-cost alternative to ISO 27001 for small businesses wanting to show their commitment to the security and data protection of their organisation and supply chain. Meeting the standard involves aligning to important information security and data privacy controls, including GDPR, and is delivered across two levels: a self-assessment and comprehensive security audit.

*Please note that Cyber Essentials is a prerequisite for the IASME Cyber Assurance certification. 

Align with GDPR

Meet GDPR requirements to ensure compliance and demonstrate high levels of data integrity to customers and suppliers.

Assured Pass

With our guided option, you’ll work closely with one of our security specialists throughout the process to achieve a first-time pass.
