Ely, England, 2 August 2011 – IT Governance Ltd, the ISO27001 global leader and an Approved Learning Provider for the MOD ELCAS scheme, has announced that MOD service personnel now have the opportunity to enhance their career in the information security sector by acquiring a certified qualification. Delegates can book onto one of the three eligible courses – ISMS Foundation, ISMS Lead Auditor and ISMS Lead Implementer.
MOD ELC claimants, who have chosen IT as a career path and have an interest in information security management (ISM), will benefit considerably from booking onto any of the IT Governance courses accredited by the Enhanced Learning Credits Administration Service (ELCAS). All three courses are focussed on delivering the qualifications and skills required to implement and manage the requirements of the ISO 27001 information security management standard. Delegates can book onto any of the three training courses here www.itgovernance.co.uk/mod_elcas_scheme.aspx.
Increasingly, organisations are seeing ISO27001 certification as a minimum standard for information security management in their suppliers. This naturally leads to higher demand for IT professionals who are able and competent to assist an organisation in developing its information security management system (ISMS) and preparing it for compliance with ISO27001. Therefore, for individuals looking to enhance their job prospects in the IT sector, an ISO27001 ISMS qualification is ideal.
Unlike many other suppliers of information security and risk management training, IT Governance focuses on providing a practical hands-on approach delivered by knowledgeable trainers. The company ensures that the delegates are awarded industry-standard certification. MOD ELC claimants attending and passing the examinations associated with the ISMS Foundation, ISMS Lead Auditor and ISMS Lead Implementer training courses will be awarded certificates by the examination body, gasq and approved by the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications.
The three training courses are designed to meet the different needs of MOD staff.
The ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Course is suitable for junior members of staff, looking for awareness and introductory training. The course is a 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 27001.
The ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer Master Class is the perfect investment for experienced staff with a strong background in information security and risk assessment who wish to further develop their career. The course provides an in-depth and practical knowledge of the implementation of the ISO27001 standard.
The ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Auditor Course has been designed for prospective service leavers with experience in information security and IT audit. The course provides ideal practical training and certification to assist in the development of a career as an ISO 27001 Auditor.
