/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO 27001 information, standards, books, tools and training, advises organisations that understanding of the best-practice guidance, as outlined in ISO 27002, is essential for any company to ensure the compliance to ISO 27001. In this respect, the Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course can help organisations become compliant with the ISO 27001 Standard and ensure that the information security measures employed are in line with industry best practice. The next sitting is on 12 December in London and bookings are currently being taken (www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3369).

In today’s information economy, the protection of information assets is a key element in the long-term competitiveness and survival of commercial organisations. The ISO 27001 Standard provides the specification for an information security management system, and the ISO/IEC 27002 Code of Practice draws on the experience of practitioners in over 40 countries to set out best practice for the delivery of an effective information security programme.

The ISO/IEC 27002 Code of Practice (www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/31) complements the implementation of COBITâ„¢ by supplying a ‘how-to’ route map to information security. ISO/IEC 27002 is also related to ITIL(R). ITIL security management is based on ISO 27002 best practice and its adoption in the ITIL(R) Lifecycle provides the foundation for effective IT governance.

The Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course is ideal for anyone who is new to information security, or who needs an understanding of information security controls as part of a broader information security or IT responsibility (www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3369). The course is particularly suited for Information Security, IT Service Management, Data Protection Officers and all Heads of Department. Successful delegates will receive a recognised industry standard certification awarded by EXIN.

Managers of organisations that are adopting the COBIT IT governance framework and/or the ITIL(R) Suite of service management best practice will benefit particularly from understanding the ISO/IEC 27002 guidelines and, therefore, should consider the Information Security Foundation based on ISO/IEC 27002 training course (www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3369).

The ISO 27001/ISO 27002: A Pocket Guide by Alan Calder provides further information on the importance and role of ISO27001 and ISO27002 in implementing an effective information security programme. This pocket guide is available from the IT Governance bookstore: www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/2019 .
