Introduction to ISO/IEC 27001 Training Course

This one-day Introduction to ISO/IEC 27001 training course will familiarise delegates with the requirements and principles of ISO 27001 (ISO/IEC 27001:2013), the international standard for an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

The course outlines why ISO/IEC 27001 is such a popular standard and its versatility in this day and age where multiple types of information and systems need to be kept secure with robust checks in place.

Through interactive workshops and slides delegates will be able to develop their understanding of ISO/IEC 27001, including its scope, structure and requirements (clauses). During the course delegates will explore key topics, including the assessment of potential threats and vulnerabilities to an ISMS, Annex SL, and the benefits and considerations of certification.

This Introduction to ISO/IEC 27001 Training Course also works well as a foundation for further training, such as the ISO/IEC 27001 Internal Auditor and CQI IRCA ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Auditor training courses. When booked with either of these training courses a discount of £100 will be applied.
