ISO/IEC 27001:2013
Foundation / Practitioner

The adoption of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a strategic decision driving the coordination of operational security controls across all of the organisation’s electronic and physical information resources.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the most widely recognised international standard specifically aimed at information security management. It provides:

  • globally-accepted best-practice framework for the protection
    of information assets
  • assurance to external customers who increasingly are demanding evidence of security and compliance.

This certificate course is fully accredited by APMG and is based on the most recent (2013) version of the ISO/IEC 27001 standard. It comprises both a Foundation and a Practitioner module which can be taken separately or combined, according to needs.

The Foundation module (2 days) is designed for anyone who needs an overview of the Standard and an appreciation of what comprises best practice in an Information Security Management System.

The Practitioner module (3 days) builds on this knowledge to give participants a deeper understanding about how to actually apply the standard for implementation, management and improvement.

Overview
