About the course

The EXIN Information Security Foundation (ISFS) is a practical, interactive, program based upon ISO/IEC 27002.
This short 1½ day course prepares delegates for the EXIN ISFS examination. An emphasis is placed upon employee awareness of security issues within the organisation. The goal is to promote a security awareness culture by creating a sense of ownership and personal responsibility when it comes to dealing with information in the workplace. This is because all employees must help to secure information assets in order for the Information Security program to operate effectively. The EXIN Information Security Foundation provides the greatest return on investment, and has the most significant positive impact on a company’s security. Furthermore, costs are quickly realised when tools and procedures are followed, and employees understand how to be more secure.
