An ISO 27001 Information Security Management System is a systematic and process driven approach to protecting your business information. It is designed to quantify and address the risks to the business and provide a structured approach to maintain confidentiality and integrity within your business context. This standard supports the company in ensuring you meet the needs of your customers, whilst delivering a consistent level of quality and protection.
No information security management system can achieve its potential unless the underlying principles are understood, supported by management and become part of a company’s normal operating procedure and provide a foundation for companies who are interested in using the standard as the mainstay for their information security approach.
This course will cover the main principles and elements of the standard and due to the depth of the standard and breadth of the subject of security it will primarily aim to familiarise delegates with the principles and provide a skeletal road map.

- categorising and mitigating risk
