How ITIL can help your cyber security career

Whether you’ve always wanted to work in IT service management (ITSM) or are just looking for a secure and well-paid career, you should know about ITIL® (the Information Technology Infrastructure Library).

It’s the most widely adopted ITSM framework in the world, being used by both small organisations and multinationals, such as Shell, HP, NASA, Microsoft and the MoD. Its prevalence means that anyone involved in ITSM should have an ITIL qualification – but it’s well worth the time and effort. Techopedia says ITIL is one of the highest paying IT certifications, and SunView Software adds that “it’s not uncommon for certified ITIL program managers and IT architects to make well over six figures in their respective salaries”. Even a Foundation qualification can lead to salaries of up to £65,000 a year.

IT Governance offers a range of training courses to help you gain ITIL qualifications. Our ITIL® Foundation (2 Day) Training Course is ideal for those getting started with the framework. It covers ITIL’s principles, models and definitions, outlines the framework’s service lifecycle and helps you prepare and practice for the ITIL Foundation exam.

The course is running in London, Birmingham and Glasgow on various dates between April and December 2018. Alternatively, you can take the course in-house.

Once you’ve passed the course, you can train for more advanced qualifications to further your career.
