ISO 27001:2013 Foundation

CQI and IRCA Certified (Course ID: 2055)

Our highly interactive course teaches delegates the structure, clauses and purpose of this international standard. This course is certified by the CQI and IRCA.

What is ISO 27001:2013?

ISO 27001:2013 is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems. By meeting the requirements of this standard you demonstrate that your organization has the necessary controls and processes in place to minimize the risks you face in the protection of key data and information. Your systems can be independently audited and your system certified – providing you and your customers a high level of reassurance that your information security arrangements are robust and effective.

Is the ISO 27001:2013 Foundation training suitable for my business?

The course is suitable for those who may have a responsibility for information security or who are required to develop systems to meet the requirement of the standard. The course is also a prerequisite for those considering becoming ISO 27001 internal auditors and must be completed prior to undertaking auditor training.

What is the difference between ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 27001:2005?

ISO 27001 was updated and republished in 2013. There were no significant changes in the requirements described within the standard, but the newer version did make some changes on how risk was to be identified and managed and removed some of the ‘preventive actions’ that used to be linked to proactive measures. The new standard also reflects the new layout of management system standards making it easier to integrate information security arrangements with, for example, ISO 9001 quality management.
