Professional training increases chances for ISO27001 certification


Ely, England, 21 June 2011 –  IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO27001 information, standards, books, tools and training, has reported that the chances of any organisation achieving ISO27001 quickly and effectively are considerably higher if staff responsible for the implementation are appropriately qualified. The ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Training Course, leading to a gasq accredited certificate, provides delegates with essential knowledge about the ISO27001 Standard and the processes that underpin it. The next available date for this course is the 13th July, and delegates who book now will save £100.

Achieving ISO27001 certification is the best way for every organisation to demonstrate to its customers, shareholders, and other stakeholders, that it follows international best practice for information security management. ISO27001 requires an organisation to develop an information security management system (ISMS) that takes into account ‘business and legal, or regulatory requirements and contractual security obligations’.

Furthermore, developing a ISMS to a high-standard is critical in the current climate of increased cyber attacks. Cyber security has become a priority issue for most countries and there is a clear tendency for ISO27001 to play an increasingly important role in the future. Therefore, organisations should make information security a priority on their corporate agenda and implement ISO27001 as soon as possible.

Creating an effective information security management system for the first time can be challenging, and requires appropriate training of staff. 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 based on ISO/IEC 27001. This course enables delegates to understand the key concepts of ISO27001, including its relationship with ISO27002. Successful candidates will be awarded the ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Certificate, issued by the exam body gasq, and approved by the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ).

 “This course is ideal for professionals with little or no experience with ISO27001. Delivered by our own expert trainers, the course will teach delegates about the essentials of the standard and what is required to start implementing ISO27001”, says Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance. “Moreover, we are proud to have been accredited by gasq and IBITGQ to deliver this independently examined training course. Qualifications that are certified by accredited and respected organisations are becoming an essential requirement of any IT practitioner and we believe this course offers all the benefits one can ask for.”
