ISO 27001 Information Security Management Lead Implementer eLearning Course

Master the implementation and management of Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) based on ISO/IEC 27001

As the world is moving faster than ever, technological developments have rapidly evolved and are redefining, among others, the way we live, learn, and teach. This expansive nature of the internet and technology demand new ways of adapting to this new virtual environment for all of us. This new world has given birth to a new form of studying that is both efficient and of global reach: eLearning.

The ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Implementer eLearning training course is designed to help you gain a theoretical and practical understanding of the implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) based on the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001. This would help organizations ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information by applying a risk management process.

After attending the eLearning training course, you can take the exam. If you successfully pass it, you can apply for a “PECB Certified ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Implementer” credential, which demonstrates your ability and practical knowledge to implement an ISMS based on the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001
