ISO27002 awareness now essential for all ITIL® and IT Service Management professionals


Ely, England, 11 June 2012IT Governance, the leading information security training provider, has reported that awareness of the ISO27002 Code of Practice is essential for the delivery of the ITIL® recommendations for information security management. The explosion in cybercrime and proliferation of cyber threats is driving all customer-focused IT Service Management teams to acquire a broad-based awareness of best practice information security practices.

Anyone in an organisation who is responsible for the security of information assets and directly supports the implementation of ITIL Service Management best practice should consider attending the Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course taking place on 26 June in London.

Closely aligned with ISO27001, 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 ISO27002 is essential to achieving the goals of an ITIL service management programme.

The ITIL security management process describes the structured integration of security in an organisation. ITIL security management is of course based on the ISO27002 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.

Organisations can now book three team members onto the next Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course in June and send a fourth delegate free.
