Implementing IT Governance: Foundations & Principles
Learning Paths from Foundation to Advanced
The IT Governance range of courses offer a structured learning path from Foundation to Advanced level in the key topics of Information Security, Business Continuity, IT governance and Service Management. Each course is designed to build the relevant skills and knowledge and enable delegate to deliver best practice and compliance to their respective organisation. For the future, we plan to introduce Expert level courses designed to further enhance the knowledge and skills of more experienced IT governance professionals.
Our key training sectors include:
ISO/IEC 27001:2005 is the best practice specification that helps businesses and organisations throughout the world develop an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Knowledge and experience in implementing and maintaining ISO27001 compliance are considered to be essential to building a successful career in information security.
ISO22301:2012 is the international standard for business continuity within organisations and defines best practice for developing and implementing a robust business continuity plan. The concept that an organisation's systems and processes should be resilient against outside attack or natural disaster is also a key principle underpinning the implementation of the ISO27001 standard.
COBIT is an internationally-accepted best practice frameworks for IT governance and control in successful organisations. The ITG COBIT Training Programme is designed to support the growing need in the UK for skilled and certified COBIT practitioners.
Available at Foundation and Implementation level, this programme provides an integrated ‘learning path’ to enable the organisation to fully benefit from the implementation of COBIT and the individual to obtain a recognised ISACA qualification.
ISO/IEC 20000 is the first international standard for IT service management and defines the best practice for the delivery of managed services to meet the needs of an organisation and its customers.
Originally developed to reflect best practice guidance contained within the ITIL framework, ISO20000 equally supports other IT Service Management frameworks including Microsoft Operations Framework and COBIT.
Compliance to Data Standards
There is an increasing requirement for organisations to ensure the security and confidentially of the personal information of their key stakeholders.
While these requirements are key in the implementation of the ISO27001 standard, organisations will also need to comply with other data standards to fulfil their legal and regulatory obligations. These include compliance to the UK Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998 and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS v2.0).
The IT Governance training courses designed to help you comply with data standards include:
Prepare to pass CISSP, CISA, CISM and CGEIT exams
ISC2 and ISACA awarded certifications are globally accepted with the CISA, CISM, CGEIT and CISSP, qualifications already recognised as the ‘must have’ requirements for a career in information security, audit and IT governance management.
With over 150,000 qualified professionals worldwide, ISC2 and ISACA certification demonstrates proven experience and is the key to a higher earning potential in the future.
