The predominance of the international ISO 17799/ISO 27001 Information Security standards means that ISO 27001 Lead Auditor status is an increasingly important and prestigious part of any serious information security professional's portfolio.

The huge popularity of the ISO 17799/ISO 27001 standards rests on the fact that they provide a proven method of identifying, managing and reducing the range of threats to which an organisation's information may be subjected.

In today’s world of high profile and often hugely damaging cyber crime, it is not hard to see why ISO 17799/ISO 27001 has become the de facto way of managing information security for so many responsible businesses.

Leading UK Information Security company, 7Safe, offers a highly practical ISO 27001 education programme. Their ISO 27001 Lead Auditor course, ISO 27001 Fundamentals course, and university accredited Implementing ISO 27001: Hands-On course are all aimed at IT Security professionals who wish to progress their careers by developing demonstrable ISO 27001 knowledge and expertise.

The 5 day ISO 27001 Lead Auditor course prepares delegates for the ISO 27001 qualification process and trains them how to conduct a comprehensive audit. The expertise they gain will also enable them to act in an advisory role to others who are working towards compliance and certification. The course is the first of its kind to be accredited by the International Register of Certified Auditors (IRCA) in association with ISO 27001 auditors Bureau Veritas.

The ISO 27001 Fundamentals course is an accessible one day introduction to the ISO 27001 Standard, which clearly sets out and explores the key principles.

7Safe’s university accredited 3 day Implementing ISO 27701 course teaches delegates the component parts of the standard, how to define risk, assess information assets in a way suitable to their organisation, and the essential requirements for obtaining ISO 27001 certification. This course forms part of 7Safe’s groundbreaking Postgraduate Certificate in Penetration Testing and Information Security.
