Information Security Management Training (ISO 27001 & ISO 27701)

Personal information has very much been in the public spotlight since the introduction of GDPR legislation. The general public are now much more conscious of what personal information organisations are allowed to hold, the reasons they hold it and whether they have been given permission to use it or not.

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard for Information Security Management. Implementing this management system will help organisations to align with GDPR requirements, provides employee and customer security and establishes credibility and trustworthiness.

An ISMS training course aims to give you the expertise to protect the integrity, accessibility, and confidentiality of the information it manages and maintains, and supports certification of your information security management systems (ISMS) against the ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 (PIMS) frameworks.

Our Information Security courses are designed to help you:

  • Protect your assets

  • Create secure policies and cyber security strategies

  • Manage and minimise security incidents and threats

  • Reduce business downtime due to incidents

  • Prevent data loss and data breaches

  • Create compliance checklists

  • Implement and utilise your management system

Minimise information security risk, obtain a widely recognised qualification and gain the practical skills to implement and audit your cyber security systems by booking your place on one of our ISO 27001:2013 or ISO 27701:2019 Information Security Training courses.

Our range of ISMS training delivered by qualified and experienced tutors will help you to understand what an Information Security Management System is, how to implement and maintain it, and how to effectively audit your system through practical knowledge sharing and industry leading tools.

NQA is also a proud CQI and IRCA Approved Training Partner, and you can find many CQI and IRCA certified courses within our portfolio.

NQA offer e-Learning, virtual, public and in-house training options to suit all learning styles and needs.

ISO 27001 e-Learning

Our ISO 27001 e-Learning course provides an interactive introduction to the key elements of ISO 27001:2013, the international standard for Information Security Management Systems. From this foundation you can build the skills to implement, audit and optimise an effective ISMS through on-demand learning, downloadable takeaways and a short test. It can be completed in as little as a few hours.

ISO 27001 Virtual Training

The training sessions are designed to give you the knowledge you need to advance and grow and are delivered by industry experts. You’ll have the chance to interact fully with both the host and other delegates over Zoom for a rounded and immersive experience, just like you would in a classroom.

ISO 27001 In-House Training

If you have a slightly larger group we can offer training at your premises, which may prove more cost effective for you. This means that we can also ensure the training is tailor-made to your needs and requirements.

Benefits of In-House training:

  • Cost effective and efficient – team learning reduces cost-per-head and increases return on investment from your training budget.
