ISO/IEC 27001 – Foundation

Course Overview

Cyber Security – ISO/IEC 27001 – Foundation

Contemporary organisations have a number of information security controls to manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property and technology. However, without a specific information security management system (ISMS), this control system could be disjointed and disorganised.

ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard for Information Security management which provides a model to establish, implement, maintain and continually improve a risk-managed ISMS. ISO/IEC 27001 specifies a management system that is coordinated with other international standards, enabling information security to be readily incorporated into a single management system.

An organisation that conforms to the ISO/IEC 27001 standard demonstrates clear, objective proof of its commitment to continued improvement of control over its sensitive and confidential information. ISO/IEC 27001, therefore, provides reassurance to sponsors, shareholders and customers that the organisation has expert control over its risk management and data security.

This course is designed to help you deploy the best security standard for your organisation and empower you with  a professional level of knowledge of ISO/IEC 27001. This Foundation certification will prepare you for the ISO/IEC 27001 Practitioner – Information Security Officer qualification.

This course is accredited by APMG providing an independent globally recognised certification in ISO/IEC 27001.

ISO/IEC 27001 Foundation is a 3 day course. Course materials, copies of the relevant standards and sample exams are supplied.
