IASME: Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (pdf)
NCC Guidelines - Volume 1 - Number 6
Nearly 60% of small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) have no information security policy in place and are ill-prepared to meet the real and increasing threat to their business information.
That’s according to a study by the University of Worcester, which also highlights how businesses that fail to maintain adequate information security measures are putting their supply chain partners at risk of being targeted.
There are established methods of providing assurance of the protection of information – such as the internationally recognised ISO27001 standard. But this standard is seen as too complex, time-consuming and expensive for smaller organisations.
In response, the IASME information security standard has been developed to provide qualifying SMEs (fewer than 250 staff) with certification that has been specifically designed with the small business in mind. The programme is grounded in international standards and keeps a watchful eye on its ongoing credibility and affordability.
In this latest Guideline, NCC head of information assurance, Dr Daniel Dresner, describes what SMEs need to do to protect their information – and how the IASME standard can help.
