Why Cyber Essentials?
Risc IT Solutions consultants are an IASME licenced Certification Body who can assess organisations against the IASME Governance standard. This standard – which is based on international best practice – utilises a risk-based approach to assess a company’s information security, and includes aspects such as staff awareness, security policies and the technical controls which underpin these.
The IASME Governance certification is seen as a realistic alternative to ISO27001 for many SMEs, and was recently recognised as the best cyber security standard by the UK Government after consultation with industry groups. The Cyber Essentials assessment is included as part of the IASME Governance certification.
