The Information Assurance for Small & Medium sized Enterprises (IASME) was launched in 2011 following its development to fill the gap in the security standard landscape for SMEs. Prior to 2011 the landscape consisted of ISO 27001 which can be expensive for an SME.

The standard offers a framework that incorporates a wider range of disciplines than Cyber Essentials and is now being seen as an alternative for businesses to adopt in order to comply with supply chain requirements.

For businesses and organisations without the need to comply with supply chain requirements, the IASME standard offers an on-going assurance through the policies and processes in place of a well-structured and robust security provision beyond the risks associated with Cyber Threats alone.

The benefits of the IASME standard will appeal to any business or organisation that stores, and needs to protect, valuable and/or sensitive data.
