IT Governance launches UK’s first risk management skills training course for information security professionals


IT Governance, the global leader in IT governance, risk management and compliance expertise, is launching the UK’s first course to provide practical knowledge of risk management in the field of information security management systems and ISO27001 implementation.

The ISO27005 Certified Risk Management Training Course is the first of its kind in the UK to deliver the comprehensive practical knowledge required to plan and implement effective risk management. It offers organisations the opportunity to capitalise on the advantages of an effective risk management strategy and obtain the knowledge and skills required to fully implement an effective ISO27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS).

Delivered by a qualified ISMS Risk Consultant, the three-day classroom course features real-life case studies to ensure delegates gain an in-depth understanding of the key activities of the ISO27005 risk management process. The course also provides the extensive use of vsRisk Information Security Risk Assessment software.

Alan Calder, Chief Executive of IT Governance, says: “Despite wide acceptance as the key to developing an effective information security strategy, risk management remains largely misunderstood and underutilised.

”The new ISO27005 Risk Management Training Course offers information security professionals across the UK access to practical training in navigating the guidelines set out within the international standard for effective information security risk management.

“Successful candidates will be awarded the Certified ISMS Risk Management (CIS RM) qualification issued by the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ). This unique course provides risk management professionals a golden opportunity to enhance their careers via industry-standard certification.”

The course is ideally suited to all parties involved in issues relating to risk management, from executives seeking clarity on information security risk management processes, to information security professionals responsible for implementing and maintaining compliance within ISO27001. It also provides essential support for consultants advising clients on the practical implementation of information security risk management, as well as delegates who have already attended the ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer training course.
