Integrated Information Management System Lead Implementer Training

Gain the skills to master your Information Management Systems

Many organisations achieve certification in standards, such as ISO 27001 or ISO 27701, but are then faced with challenges in operating and maintaining those standards in-house. Complexities increase as additional standards are acquired to meet compliance obligations. These headwinds can be overcome by learning to integrate your management systems and bring them into harmony

To give your staff the skill set they need, Vital Advisory present four day training workshops, in Sydney and Melbourne, helping you to connect Information Management Systems and reduce their overheads and conflicts. An optional fifth-day exam lets attendees gain Lead Implementer Certification to demonstrate their proficiency.

Invest in your capabilities

Successful organisations and professionals are able to effectively and efficiently adopt and operate governance standards. Being able to see how differing standards have similar structures and core concepts is key to reducing operational burdens and ensuring business goals are met.
