Cyber Essentials Changes – IASME Certification Body

Since 1st October 2014 CREST have been a certification body for Cyber Essentials alongside IASME. A recent government tender for Cyber Essentials means that IASME will be the only certification body for Cyber Essentials in the future.

What that means for you?

Until the change comes into effect you can still attain a Cyber Essentials certification via CREST which will be valid for 12 months.

When is the change going to happen?

April 2020

Is there going to be a price change?

Yes, as the certification will only be able to be attained via IASME, they will be controlling the price. Cyber Essentials Basic will no longer be offered by DigitalXRAID, and the cost of Cyber Essentials Plus could increase by around 20%.

If you are currently in the process of doing your cyber essentials we can continue as normal with CREST until the end of March 2020. Your Cyber Essentials Certification will remain valid for 12 months. Once the deadline has passed IASME will be the only body you can achieve Cyber Essentials through.
