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.
Preparing for ISO27001:2013
This training course is based on the requirements as specified by the ISO27001:2005 standard. In September 2013, the ISO27001:2005 standard was replaced by ISO 27001:2013, in response to which we have upgraded this course to include a unique ISO27001:2013 Knowledge Update.
While there is a new version of the standard, there is as yet no accredited certification scheme available anywhere in the world. In the UK, we estimate that the earliest any UKAS-accredited Certification Body will make such a scheme available will be March-April 2014.
The existing ISO27001:2005 certification schemes are still currently the only available way of obtaining the ISO27001 standard.
We advise all organisations who wish to become certificated in the next 6 to 12 months to focus on satisfying the requirements of the ISO27001:2005 standard and to train their staff appropriately.
We also advise organisations that they must understand the requirements of ISO27001:2013 for the future. For a more detailed understanding and update of the implementation and audit processes, we recommend that you subsequently attend our ISO27001 2013 Certified ISMS Transition training course.
For further information, please see ISO 27001 2013 Training – A New Approach.
