What is ISMS ISO 27001 Lead Auditor Training?

A highly interactive 5-day course that will teach you the tools and techniques required to perform audits of Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) against ISO 27001. This course will enable you to plan, lead and report audits within your own organisation, of your suppliers or for third party organisations.

IMPORTANT! There is a new European version of 27001 called BS EN ISO/IEC 27001:2017, which includes approval by CEN/Cenelec. The changes from ISO 27001:2013 are very minor and affect only subclause 6.1.3 and control A.8.1.1. They are not considered significant in the delivery of this course. The latest official “ISO” version is currently ISO 27001:2013.
