Ely, England, 30 January 2012 – IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO27001 training, standards, books, and tools, has announced that there are a few places available for the February session of the ISO 27001 ISMS Foundation Training Course and the ISO27001 Certified Lead Implementer Masterclass . If they book the courses together delegates will save almost £300. Bookings can be made immediately here:

Formal training has become a must for IT professionals who are responsible for developing and maintaining an ISO27001-compliant Information security Management System (ISMS). Companies compliant with ISO27001, the international Information Security Standard, report achieving significant competitive advantage including winning new business, increasing customer confidence and improved organisational efficiency. Moreover, ISO27001 implementation is seen as an effective weapon against cyber crime.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “Take-up of ISO27001 is rapidly accelerating across all sectors. Organisations that let themselves fall behind can expect a few problems in the future. Not only will they be more vulnerable to data breaches, but they will also lose their competitive edge.”

“Developing an ISMS to a high standard requires qualified staff who are familiar with the ISO27001 requirements, and who are able to implement all procedures and controls correctly and efficiently.” continues Calder. “It is the Board’s responsibility to ensure that they employee people with the right skills. On the other hand, individuals looking to progress their career in information security can benefit a lot from training and an industry recognised certification.”

The ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Course is the recognised starting point for anyone involved in, or considering starting, the journey towards development of an information security management system based on ISO/IEC 27001. This course enables delegates to understand the key concepts of ISO27001, including its relationship with ISO27002. Successful candidates will be awarded the ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Certificate, issued by the exam body gasq, and approved by the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ).

In February delegates can take the  ISO27001 Certified Lead Implementer Masterclass immediately after the ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Course, thus optimising their training time and costs. The latter will allow them to take their understanding of ISO 27001 to the next level and learn how to implement ISO27001 from a beginner's state through to completion. The ISO27001 Certified Lead Implementer Masterclass is also approved by IBITGQ.

These two ISO27001 training courses together cover all the key steps in preparing for, and achieving, certification first time. They are suitable for information security managers, those writing information security policies or implementing ISO27001.
