ELCAS approved training enables career in information security


Ely, England, 14 September 2011IT Governance Ltd, the ISO27001 global leader and an approved learning provider for the MOD ELCAS scheme, has reported that MOD ELC claimants now have the opportunity to enhance their career in the information security sector by acquiring a certified qualification.  Delegates can book onto one of the three eligible courses – ISO 27001 ISMS Foundation, ISO 27001 ISMS Lead Auditor and ISO 27001 ISMS Lead Implementer.

Increasingly, organisations are seeing ISO27001 certification as a minimum standard for information security management in their suppliers. This naturally leads to higher demand for IT professionals who are able and competent to assist an organisation in developing its information security management system (ISMS) and preparing it for compliance with ISO27001. Therefore, for individuals looking to enhance their job prospects in the IT sector, an ISO27001 ISMS qualification is ideal.

IT Governance’s ISO27001 training programme is built on the foundations of the company’s extensive practical experience of designing and implementing management systems. All three courses are focussed on delivering the qualifications and skills required to implement and manage the requirements of the ISO 27001 information security management standard. Delegates can book onto any of the three training courses here: www.itgovernance.co.uk/mod_elcas_scheme.aspx.

The three training courses are designed to meet the different needs of MOD staff:

The ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Course is suitable for junior members of staff, looking for awareness and introductory training. The course is a recognised starting point for anyone involved in, or considering, or starting on the journey towards development of an information security management system (ISMS) based on ISO/IEC 27001.

The ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer Masterclass is the perfect investment for experienced staff with a strong background in information security and risk assessment who wish to further develop their career. The course provides an in-depth and practical knowledge of the implementation of the ISO27001 Standard.

The ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Auditor Course has been designed for prospective service leavers with experience in information security and IT audit. The course provides ideal practical training and certification to assist in the development of a career as an ISO 27001 auditor.
