ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System Foundation Course
This interactive two 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 recognized 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.

    * A summary of the problems that you have to guard against;

    * The current status of accreditation and certification against the standards.
    * You will receive practical checklists enabling you to undertake a survey of your own organization and determine if you have significant weaknesses that should be addressed.
    * On completion of the course, you will have an appreciation of the technical problems likely to be encountered in implementing information security management systems.
