The SMB1001:2023 Multi-tiered cyber security standard for small and medium businesses is a prescriptive dynamic standard which allows all organisations to start and monitor their journey towards resilience against evolving cyber threats.
SMB1001 provides organisations of any sector with guidance for developing their cyber security hygiene.
This standard has a particular awareness of small and medium-sized businesses with their needs and resources being considered in the development of SMB1001.
Meeting the highest tier of SMB1001 indicates that an organisation has implemented good cyber security measures. Adopting SMB1001 supports organisations in their path towards meeting ISO/IEC 27001 requirements. It also supports organisations in managing the likelihood and impact of potential cyber threats.
46 controls stepped across 5 Tiers. Tier 1 is 6 controls while Tier 5 is all 46 controls. The 46 controls are set out in 5 Categories (Technology Management, Access Management, Backup and Recovery, Policies, Processes and Plans and Education and Training.)
Due to its multi-tier approach this standard is excellent for small and medium businesses but equally fits the criteria for being able to provide robust assurance across all practice areas for large organisations looking to assess their own businesses and suppliers.
Businesses can self assess themselves using the Assessment process in Assuredly for Tiers 1-3. Once complete businesses can request certification without needing to engage an independent auditor. An independent verification organisation (IVO) approved by Cyber Cert is required to provide independent verification to achieve certification for Tiers 4 and 5.
