The course has really helped our team to get an overview of information security. It covers all the basics well and has led into the wider ISO27001 policies we have produced. The speed to have the course setup and users created was incredible, and a big help in our tight timescales - thank you! It has served the purpose we purchased it for excellently and we would like to keep using it with all new starters and as a refresher course later on.
