ISO27001-compliant organisations need trained lead auditors to maintain their ISMS

/ Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO27001 training, consultancy, books and tools, is advising organisations that employing a minimum of two lead auditors is essential for maintaining compliance to the ISO27001 standard. Qualified lead auditors can ensure that their company's cyber security defences are adequate for the ever evolving cyber threats and their ISMS is up-to-date.

To assist organisations with staff training and compliance at the same time, IT Governance has made a small number of extra seats available on the Certified ISO27001 Lead Auditor Training Course in July at a staggering £800 off list price. Places can be booked immediately online here

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, 'Every organisation needs lead auditors who are responsible for auditing the firm's information security management system (ISMS) and for ensuring the appropriate information security controls are being applied. Lead auditors also have an important role in planning and carrying out supply chain audits.'

The Certified ISO27001 Lead Auditor Training Course is jointly developed by IT Governance, the leading expert in ISO27001 implementation, and Certification Europe, one of Europe's most innovative accredited certification bodies. The course uniquely combines lead audit expertise (drawing on Certification Europe) with implementation expertise (drawing on IT Governance). It provides delegates with a recognised industry standard certification awarded by gasq and approved by the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ).

The Certified ISO27001 Lead Auditor Training Course gives delegates valuable insights into designing, leading and delivering cost-effective and value-generating ISO27001 compliance audits. It is delivered by both experienced auditors and active practitioners in the field of ISO27001 and information security, therefore giving unique insight from both sides of the auditing fence.

The Certified ISO27001 Lead Auditor Training Course fits well with the CISSP and SSCP CPE programme and is worth 31 credits.

Bookings onto the course can be made online at Places can also be booked directly from the friendly, helpful IT Governance service centre team on telephone number +44 (0)845 070 1750. Larger organisations can make bookings with a purchase order, either by telephone, or by e-mail to
