Why organisations need qualified ISO27001 internal auditors


Ely, England, 12 June 2012 – IT Governance, the global leader in cybersecurity and ISO27001 information, books, tools, training and consultancy, has stressed that qualified ISO27001 internal auditors are an essential resource for any organisation implementing an ISO27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS). The ISO27001 Certified ISMS Internal Auditor course provides the knowledge and skills that internal auditors will need.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, ‘Internal auditing is fundamental to any management system. Information security staff, who are tasked with carrying out internal audits, must possess the necessary skills and knowledge in order to be able to ensure that their ISMS conforms with the requirements of the ISO27001 Standard. They have to be able to make assessments and identify improvement opportunities.’

Whilst an internal auditor qualification can be an excellent career enhancement for individuals, it is also a valuable asset to organisations which are compliant, or on their way to becoming compliant, with ISO27001.

IT Governance Ltd runs a number of ISO27001 Certified ISMS Internal Auditor courses over the year  and the next sitting takes place on 45 July in London. Delegates will save £100 if they book onto the course now here: www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/1193.

The ISO27001 Certified ISMS Internal Auditor course is one of IT Governance’s longest-running ISO27001 training courses and is specifically designed for all those within an organisation who will be involved in carrying out internal audits. Special pricing is available for organisations that want to send multiple members of staff on the course.

Delegates attending the ISO27001 Certified ISMS Internal Auditor course will save their organisations time, effort and money by gaining a better understanding of the requirements for successful ISO27001 certification. Ensuring that audit reports follow the best format and contain all the relevant information, as well as reducing duplication of effort when conducting combined information security audits, are only some of the benefits that the course brings. Delegates will learn how to avoid confusion over the objectives of the audit programme and secure agreement of the goals for individual audits within an audit programme.
