This three day ISO/IEC 27001 Foundation training course will introduce delegates to the requirements and principles of ISO/IEC 27001, providing delegates with an awareness of the issues and challenges involved in implementing an information security management system.
This practical foundation course is designed to provide an introduction to information security management (ISM) systems as set out in ISO/IEC 27001:2017.

N.B. There is no change to the content of the ISO27001 standard despite a new 2017 version being published recently. It is basically just a change to incorporate renumbering of BS ISO/IEC 27001:2013 to include the EN status as BS EN ISO/IEC 27001:2017. This means the standard has now been ratified by at least one of the European Standardisation Organisations.
