IASME Governance Versus ISO 27001 and other standards

ISO 27001 is the industry standard for the management of information security. The standard covers all aspects of your business and how you interact with security. It provides a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing and improving your information security management system in a structured and well defined way.

The IASME Governance standard was developed over several years during a government funded project to create a cyber security standard which would be an affordable and achievable alternative for small and medium businesses.

The procurement teams of many large companies will accept the IASME Governance Audited standard as independent confirmation of good information and cyber security practice. This is extremely useful when trying to win tenders and renew contracts, particularly where supplier requirements mention ISO 27001.

The IASME governance standard maps closely to a number of widely recognised cyber security and assurance standards and guides. This means it can be used to demonstrate compliance to many of these standards.
