The course will cover not only the accepted principles of auditing, but will give participants a detailed understanding of audit methodology, including audit preparation, managing an audit team, determining compliance with the standard, interview techniques, following audit trails and documenting evidence.

Delegates will participate in workshops and case studies to develop their auditing technique, and will learn how to handle some of the more challenging situations an auditor may face. The course has been designed in keeping with international standards on auditing techniques, including ISO 19011.
The course will also familiarise participants with the challenges of auditing ISO27001 and will cover all sections of the standard in detail, providing tips on how to audit individual clauses, including risk assessments, business continuity, and effective continual improvement.

The course will make extensive use of group exercises and case studies throughout the four and a half days, providing attendees with a proper foundation in the practical aspects of auditing conformance with IS027001.
