Ely, England, 2 August 2011 – IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO 27001 information, standards, books, tools and training, has announced that the next Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course will take place on 20th September in London. The course is particularly suitable for the managers of organisations that are adopting the COBIT IT governance framework and applying the ITIL framework for service management best practice.
In close alignment with ISO 27001, the ISO/IEC 27002:2005 Standard serves as a practical guideline for all members of staff as they initiate, implement and maintain information security. An understanding of the best practice guidance, as outlined in ISO 27002, is essential to achieving the goals of COBIT and ITIL service management programmes.
Although information security is one of the organisational goals defined by COBIT - an IT governance control framework - COBIT does not supply a how-to route map. This is ably provided by the ISO 27002 Standard, which draws on the experience of practitioners in over 40 countries to set out best practice for the delivery of an effective information security programme.
On the other hand, ITIL security management is based on the ISO 27002 best practice. Its adoption in the ITIL lifecycle provides the foundation for effective IT governance and structured integration of security in an organisation.
The Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 is the essential starting point for anybody who wants to get to grips with best-practice information security controls. The course is beneficial to everyone who is new to information security, or who needs an understanding of information security controls as part of a broader information security or IT responsibility. This course is based on the EXIN Information Security Foundation syllabus, and prepares delegates for the end of the day EXIN ISFS examination. Successful candidates will be awarded the EXIN Information Security Foundation Certificate.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance explains, “ISO 27002 contains 133 best practice controls which should be understood by everyone in IT and information security and this course ensures that people can do that.”
