IASME and Cyber Essentials


5th March 2018

Pollards Print is proud to announce that we now have accreditation for both IASME and Cyber Essentials.

 

Cyber Essentials Scheme: overview

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats. It focuses on key controls to help protect data and reduce the risk of cyber-attack.

IASME

Pollards has chosen to adopt the Information Assurance for Small Medium Enterprise (IASME) standard. IASME is one of five companies which has the right to act as an Accreditation Body for Cyber Essentials scheme. It has been recognised as the best cyber security standard for small companies by the UK Government. Under the scheme organisations are audited for key controls such as physical security, data management, staff awareness and document policies. These controls were identified by the government as the best way to prevent cyber-attacks on organisations.
