Introduction to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Information Security Management Systems (ISMS)


This interactive and practical foundation course is designed to provide an introduction to information security management (ISM) systems as set out in ISO/IEC 27001. Information security covers many issues, from copyright to internet security, and the proprietary information that an organization has is now recognised as one of its main assets. Ensuring the security of this information is thus a primary responsibility of senior executives in preserving the value of the organization.
