ISO 27001 Lead Auditor training November 20-23

| Floris van den Broek | Security

It is important and often mandatory for organisation with a security policy to provide the right training to all key roles involved in information security and privacy. One key role in security policies is internal auditor, and we recommend the ISO 27001 lead auditor course for anyone involved in the internal audit programme. This is an intensive in-depth course that includes an exam and an internationally recognized certificate from IRCA / CQI. Register here.

Required security training

With ICT Institute we have helped many organisations set up their security policies, and we help these companies stay compliant with their own roles by offering several training options. Our aim is to offer many different options, so that it fits each role and also each person. Currently we offer the following:

  • We offer many knowledge articles directly on our website. This includes basic knowledge (e.g. ISO 27001 summary) practical aspects (e.g. password policy) and also technical background (e.g. cryptographic controls policy).
  • When we help companies getting started with information security and setting up their ISMS, we cover basic security and privacy knowledge in a series of workshops.
  • There is a freely accessible Special Interest Group. Many standards (including ISO 27001 and Security Verified) require membership of special interest groups.
  • Together with an International partner, we offer the CQI / IRCA ISO 27001 lead auditor training. This is a multi-day training that is recommended for people taking a leading role in a security team. It is an in-depth training that includes an exam and internationally recognised certification.

The Lead Auditor training is currently the most in-depth training we offer, and if you pass this training you are demonstrably qualified to take a leading security and privacy role. If you are new to information security, the training provides a solid base. If you have been involved in information security for longer, this training will help you demonstrate your continuous development in this area.
