The ISO 27001 information security training courses are tailored to meet the requirements of the delegates for implementing an information security management system (ISMS) within their organisation depending on the stage of their project.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT governance, says, "The data breaches we witnessed in 2011, as well as various reports on cyber security released recently, show that cyber crime is increasing. The cyber threats will become ever more sophisticated and targeted. This is a clear message to organisations which need go a step further in protecting their information assets and improving their cyber defenses".

'ISO 27001 certification is the best way for every organisation to demonstrate to its customers, shareholders, and other stakeholders, that it follows international best practice for information security management.' Calder continues, 'Developing an ISMS to a high standard inevitably requires qualified staff who are familiar with the ISO 27001 requirements and who are able to implement all procedures and controls correctly and efficiently.'
