My company purchased the online information security module to assist in achieving ISO 27001 certification. The support received from IT Governance made the process of all staff completing the module smooth and speedy. The external auditors were impressed with the content of the module. I would definitely use them again! Clare McArdle, Project Manager, Achilles Information Limited
