IASME set to relaunch their flagship information security standard
The IASME Cyber Assurance Standard, formerly known as the IASME Governance Standard will be released on 25th July 2022 with a refreshed focus, rebranded name and revised logo.
Built upon the solid foundations of the original standard, the update comes to ensure the standard remains relevant to recent changes in technology. With the huge shift from on-premise infrastructure to the cloud, as well as the dramatic changes seen to business practices such as working from home and the use of mobile devices.
“IASME Cyber Assurance is a comprehensive, flexible and affordable cyber security standard that provides assurance that an organisation has put in place a range of important cyber security, privacy and data protection measures. It aligns directly with the UK Government’s 10 steps to Cyber Security with additional Data Privacy controls and offers smaller companies within a supply chain a ‘right sized’ approach to show their level of information security for a realistic cost.
Important cyber security measures are included such as assessing and managing risk, training people and setting practical policies and procedures. Key resilience strategies are covered and include backing up data, business continuity planning and incident response. Legal and regulatory requirements are also addressed such as your country’s implementation of GDPR (in the UK this is the Data Protection Act). IASME.co.uk
