10 steps to cyber-security with IASME Certification
Zenotech recently achieved Cyber Essentials certification to demonstrate our commitment to online security. But as cyber-security is such a priority, we felt it was important to address an even wider range of risks, and therefore we have now also secured IASME Certification.
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has broader guidance on online security than Cyber Essentials, which is based on security controls that are due to the most common remote cyber attacks. We recognised that it was important to address a broader range of controls including those identified in the NCSC’s 10 steps to help mitigate the risks to cyber-security.
As a tech startup, we chose the IASME governance framework, which has been recognised as the best cyber security standard for small businesses by the UK Government in consultation with trade associations and industry groups. Based on international best practice, this certificate is risk-based and includes aspects such as physical security, staff awareness and data backup. In addition, a growing number of companies regard the audited IASME Certification as a realistic alternative to ISO27001, a valued information security standard.
This certification was also necessary to meet GDPR guidelines, which requires organisations to use appropriate technical or internal organisational measures to ensure the appropriate security of personal data.
