Malvern based, IASME Consortium, has been announced as the Cyber Business of the Year at the prestigious National Cyber Awards.
Established in 2012, IASME, specialises in certification for cyber security and information assurance. Their certifications include Cyber Essentials, a Government backed scheme which demonstrates businesses have key controls in place to enhance their resilience against the ever-increasing cyber-threat. IASME also specialises in IASME Governance, an information assurance standard which is written along similar lines to the internationally recognised ISO27001, yet is more practical for SMEs. Over the last 12 months IASME has certified over 4,000 organisations, making it the market leading Accreditation Body in this field.
Over the last 12-months, IASME has also established its Community SOC, an initiative which has garnered significant interest across the cyber security sector and beyond. The initiative makes enterprise style solutions accessible to those small and micro businesses with more modest budgets. It includes searching the internet to identify if there is any potentially damaging information on your staff which may be used against a business. It also includes secure access to, and monitoring of, internet traffic to provide businesses with enhanced protection and, additionally, a scan of your systems to assess if your business has any potential vulnerabilities that may be exploited by cyber criminals. The IASME Community SOC is unique in that it is manned entirely by a pool of talented neuro-diverse employees.
Chief Executive, Emma Philpott, outlined, “We are delighted to have won this award. The IASME team and our fantastic Certification Bodies have worked tirelessly to make cyber solutions accessible and affordable for businesses of all sizes. We are particularly pleased to have made our Community SOC concept a valuable reality. That is all down to the incredible talent of our neuro diverse team.”
The IASME Consortium received the award at a ceremony held at Manor by the Lake in Cheltenham. It was a night which recognised the talents and innovation within cyber security with IASME gaining the prize for the best cyber business.
