Combined DPA, PCI and ISO27001 Foundation Training available from IT Governance

/ IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in information security training, has announced an exclusive training combination offer valid only in April. Organisations that book the DPA, PCI and ISO27001 Foundation Training courses together during April 2012 will get three courses for the price of two:

In the UK, many organisations have to comply with more than one regulation and a combined training approach should be very beneficial to both the organisation and its employees, in terms of effectiveness, time-planning and cost-saving.

All organisations must comply with the Data Protection Act and every organisation that stores, transmits or processes card holder data must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

At the same time, all organisations increasingly face cybersecurity challenges. Due to the rise in cyber threats, many companies are turning to ISO27001, the international cybersecurity standard, to mitigate the risk.

As part of a compliance project to tackle DPA and PCI compliance, implementers should attend the ISO27001 Certified ISMS Foundation training course. The course is a recognised starting point for anyone involved in, considering, or starting on the journey towards development of an information security management system based on ISO/IEC 27001.

The DPA Foundation course combines a mixture of theory and group workshop sessions to examine the DPA legislation. It also explores methods of complying with the DPA whilst supporting business objectives. Delegates who take the course will be able to review and understand the current processes of handling personal data and ensure that these processes are in line with the latest Data Protection Act compliance requirements.

The PCI Foundation Training Course provides comprehensive and practical coverage of all aspects of implementing the PCI DSS. It will help delegates develop an efficient, cost-effective plan for meeting this essential compliance standard.

The course dates are fully flexible and organisations can send a different delegate on each course.

Organisations can book delegates onto the courses online here
