/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO 27001 certified training, consultancy, books and tools has announced the dates for the first sittings of its ISO 27001 ISMS training courses in 2012. The take-up of ISO 27001 is rapidly accelerating across all sectors and as a result, ISO 27001 training is becoming an integral part of the process to ISO 27001 implementation and certification. Delegates who book before 23rd December will benefit from some attractive offers.

The ISO 27001 standard provides the framework for organisations to ensure the security of their information. Increasingly companies are acknowledging that effective cyber security can be achieved by strictly following the ISO 27001 guidelines. The ISO 27001 standard requires an organisation to develop an information security management system (ISMS) that takes into account ‘business and legal or regulatory requirements and contractual security obligations’.

Companies which are ISO 27001 certified and compliant usually achieve significant competitive advantage.
IT Governance deploy the practical expertise developed over nearly ten years of ISO27001 involvement. The company is known for its outstanding training service team and excellent tutors. The ISO 27001 ISMS classes encompass foundation and advanced levels and provide unique insights and pragmatic training on everything necessary to successfully design, implement or audit an ISO 27001 ISMS.

The ISO 27001 ISMS Foundation Course is the recognised starting point for anyone involved in, or starting on the journey towards development of an information security management system based on ISO/IEC 27001. It enables delegates to understand the key concepts of ISO 27001, including its relationship with ISO 27002. The next sitting is on the 12th January and places can be booked online here: www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/700.

Delegates have the opportunity to attend the ISO27001 ISMS Foundation Course absolutely free, if they book onto the January ISO27001 Certified Lead Implementer Masterclass by 23rd December. The latter will allow them to take their understanding of ISO 27001 to the next level and learn how to implement ISO27001 from a beginner’s state through to completion. Both courses are approved by the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ) and successful delegates will receive industry recognised certificates.

Professionals with the responsibility for auditing an information security management system (ISMS), or for ensuring best practice in information security controls, should attend the Certified ISO27001 Lead Auditor Training Course. This course, jointly developed by IT Governance and Certification Europe, and approved by IBITGQ, prepares delegates to plan and execute audits of information security management systems in line with ISO/IEC 27001. The course would also benefit external consultants seeking to support the auditing activity of an information security system within client organisations. Delegates who book onto the January course before 23rd December will receive a free iRiver Story HD e-book reader. This luxury e-book reader, worth almost £120, can read any file format and would be the ideal gadget for the winter holidays.

IT Governance also delivers tailored in-house training that ensures staff play an effective, on-going role in securing an organisation’s corporate information. In house training courses can be tailored to the organisation’s specific needs, business environment and ISMS project.

Organisations can book delegates onto any of the above course online here www.itgovernance.co.uk/iso27001-courses.aspx . Course places can also be booked directly with the friendly, helpful IT Governance service centre team on telephone number +44 (0)845 070 1750.
