ISMS training becomes an integral part of ISO 27001 implementation


Ely, England, 6 October 2011 – IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO 27001 information, standards, books, tools and training, has reported that there are still a few places available on its popular ISO 27001 ISMS Foundation Training Course in November. Delegates will save £100 if they book on the course now.

The ISO 27001 standard provides the framework for organisations to ensure the security of their information. ISO 27001 requires an organisation to develop an information security management system (ISMS) that takes into account ‘business and legal or regulatory requirements and contractual security obligations’. It should be adopted by an organisation as part of its overall risk management strategy.

Companies which are ISO 27001 certified and compliant usually achieve significant competitive advantage. The take-up of ISO 27001 is rapidly accelerating across all sectors and as a result, ISO 27001 training is becoming an integral part of the process to ISO 27001 implementation and certification.

The ISO 27001 ISMS Foundation Course is the recognised starting point for anyone involved in, or starting on the journey towards development of an information security management system based on ISO/IEC 27001.

The course is based on Alan Calder & Steve Watkins’ books, ISO 27001/ISO 27002 A Pocket Guide and An Introduction to Information Security and ISO 27001. This course enables delegates to understand the key concepts of ISO 27001, including its relationship with ISO 27002. One delegate described the course as, “A good introduction to an important subject that affects all of us and that is becoming more important in today’s shrinking world. Sensible, pragmatic and value-adding!”
