This interactive ONE DAY course provides an introduction to information security management systems (ISMSs) as set out in ISO/IEC 27001 (formerly  ISO/IEC 17799 / BS 7799). Information security covers many issues, from copyright to internet security, and the proprietary information that an organization has is now recognised as one of its main assets. Ensuring the security of this information is thus a primary responsibility of senior executives in preserving the value of the organization.

Key Session Topics

  • Threats, vulnerabilities and risks
  • The detailed requirements of ISO/IEC 27001
  • Planning the system: resources that will be required

  • Producing a Statements of Applicability
  • Developing an ISMS implementation plan

  • The knowledge to allow you to undertake a self assessment and then start the implementation process within your own organization.
  • The confidence to identify Security risks relevant to your organization and implement systems to manage them.
