-- With constant reports on new data breaches, and pressure from governments, it is hard to ignore the importance of information security
. Just being serious about cyber risk and data protection is no longer enough; organisations have to do more - they need to take the matter in their own hands.
But where do we start? What do we do first? - These are probably questions that many executives, or those responsible for information security management, are asking themselves.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance
, explains that attending the ISO27001 Foundation course
, which is an introduction to the subject of information security based on the ISO27001 standard, is almost a must for anyone that has an interest or responsibility in the area.
Calder says, "The ISO27001 Foundation course is an essential course for anyone looking to take their commitment to information security a step further by implementing a formal Information Security Management System (ISMS).
"The course not only provides an introduction to the information security standard ISO27001, but it also explains the benefits from implementing the standard and shows attendees how they can get senior management buy-in; which is one of the most common problems they face. The course also provides a valuable insight into the ISO27001 information security controls that every organisation has to consider.
"Attendees come to our ISO27001 Foundation course in order to gain knowledge as well as to interact with other professionals, which is enabled by the exercises during the course. All the feedback we've received so far suggests that this is very useful course, one that is regarded as time and money well spent."
The ISO27001 Foundation course runs in both London and Manchester. The next available sitting is on 25th February in London, currently available at a special price. Places can be booked immediately online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-710.aspx
