IT Governance delivers the first ISMS course approved by IBITGQ


Ely, England, 19 July 2011 – IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO27001 training, information, standards, books, tools and consultancy, has reported that it is the first Approved Training Organisation (ATO) to deliver an ISMS training course that led to the award of the first IBITGQ certificates in the UK.  

Delegates who attended the company’s ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer course in May 2011 are the first to receive the Certified ISMS Lead Implementer (CIS LI) qualification awarded by The International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ). All candidates had to complete and pass an IBITGQ exam delivered as part of the course.

Three of IT Governance’s classroom based courses ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Course, ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer and ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Auditor Coursewere approved by IBITGQ  a not-for-profit association dedicated to the development of certifications for the continued professional development of information security, business resilience and IT governance professionals. Candidates who book on any of these courses and pass the exam at the end of the course will receive respectively, the following qualifications: ISMS Foundation (CIS F), ISMS Lead Implementer (CIS LI) and Certified ISMS Lead Auditor (CIS LA). The certificates are issued by gasq, an independent international accredited certification body approved by IBITGQ.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “Qualifications that are certified by accredited and respected organisations are becoming an essential requirement of any IT governance professional. With an ever increasing demand for information security professionals, employers are prepared to make generous offers to candidates who have relevant experience and the necessary internationally recognised qualifications. We are delighted that we have been approved by IBITGQ to deliver training courses which can enhance the career of every IT professional.”

IT Governance’s ISO27001 training programme is built on the foundations of the company’s extensive practical experience of designing and implementing management systems. Its development draws on a ‘real-world’ experience to provide a range of courses specific to the learning objectives of the topic concerned and  broad enough in scope to provide an integrated and progressive ‘learning path’ for all delegates.

The ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Course is the 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 27011.

IT Governance is particularly known for the ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer Master Class, which is acknowledged by its customers as the most comprehensive in the UK. The course gives delegates a thorough understanding of how they should go about implementing the ISO27001 standard.

The ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Auditor Course has been designed for those who plan and conduct audits – whether internal or external. Auditing is fundamental to any management system, as it is the means by which conformance to the management system requirements are assessed, and improvement opportunities are identified.
