ISO 27001 - Lead Implementer

Interactive training and certification to kick start your ISO27001 journey

Vital Advisory present a four day workshop to help information security and risk practitioners understand ISO 27001, its processes, and how to achieve a successful ISMS implementation.

The core concepts of this workshop are key to reaching your organisational goal of ISO 27001 certification.

Invest in your information security capabilities

Training: 4 – 8 Dec 2023.

ISO 27001 is the universally recognised standard for the governance of information security. The standard has many strengths, but also many subtleties which challenge those seeking to implement their first framework. A successful implementation seeks not just tick the boxes relating to certification, but to bring about change to your organisation to effectively manage risk and improve security.

Vital Advisory’s four-day ISO 27001 Lead Implementer training course allows you to learn about the key concepts of an Information Security Management System (ISMS), and its conformance requirements, in a simple and pragmatic way. It covers the process for implementing the Standard through to obtaining ISO27001 certification and its ongoing maintenance. The course will also demystify some of the common misconceptions of cyber security and ISO27001.

The course will cover foundational concepts, that will enable technical, risk, assurance, and compliance professionals to understand and participate in ISO27001 implementation.

The course uses an activity-based learning approach, with activities based on participants developing aspects of their organisation’s own ISMS during the course.

+ Online Training: 4 to 8 December, 2023.
