This 1-day practical Introduction to ISO 27001 training course will familiarise delegates with the requirements and principles of ISO/IEC 27001:2013, the international standard for an information security management system (ISMS).

Through interactive workshops and presentations led by highly experienced tutors, delegates will develop their understanding of ISO 27001, including its scope, structure and requirements. They will explore key topics, including the determination of risks and vulnerabilities to an ISMS, Annex SL, and the benefits and considerations of certification, with the aim of maintaining or achieving ISO 27001 compliance.

Delegates will leave the course with an understanding of what is needed for an effective ISMS, and all students completing the course will be provided with a certificate.
