ISO 27002 training essential to ensure compliance to ISO 27001


Ely, England, 26 October 2011IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO 27001 information, standards, books, tools and training, has reported that an additional date in December has been added for the Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course.  The course delivers a comprehensive education in ISO 27002 best practice and is particularly suited for and a recognised industry standard certification awarded by EXIN.

Closely aligned with the ISO 27001 Standard, ISO 27002 serves as a practical guideline for all members of staff as they initiate, implement and maintain an information security programme. An understanding of the best practice guidance outlined in ISO 27002 is essential to ensure the compliance to ISO 27001 in any organisation. It lays out a set of suggested controls to address information security risks, covering confidentiality, integrity and availability aspects.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “ISO 27002 contains 133 best practice controls which should be understood by everyone in IT and information security and this foundation course ensures that people can do that.”

There are no prerequisites for this Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course, which is ideal for anyone 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. The course is particularly suited for Information Security, IT Service Management, Data Protection Officers and all Heads of Department.

Moreover, ISO/IEC 27002 complements the implementation of COBIT™. COBIT, an IT governance control framework, does not supply a ‘how-to’ route map to information security. This is ably provided by the ISO 27002 Code of Practice.

ISO/IEC 27002 is related to ITIL® as well. ITIL security management is based on the ISO 27002 best practice and its adoption in the ITIL Lifecycle provides the foundation for effective IT governance. The security management process has relations with almost all other ITIL-processes but is most associated with service level management, incident management and change management.

Managers of organisations that are adopting the COBIT IT governance framework and/or the ITIL Suite of service management best practice, will benefit particularly from understanding the ISO/IEC 27002 guidelines and therefore should consider the Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course.
