Lead Auditor Transitioning from ISO/IEC 27001:2005 to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Training Course

This two day course is aimed at existing lead auditors currently auditing, implementing or consulting ISMSs conforming to ISO/IEC 27001:2005. 

With the updated standard ISO/IEC 27001:2013 now available, there is a need for organizations to prepare for ISMS audits that check conformance with the current standard. 

Information security management lead auditors, after having passed this course and a two hour examination, will be able to meet that need. 

We will teach you the differences between the previous and current versions of the standard which will give you the knowledge to be able to inform and instruct a business about how conformance can be achieved.  

This can be particularly helpful to organizations where the transition strategy will repurpose existing ISMS documentation and processes over to the current standard. 

Organizations will seek your input in preparation for an independent audit and of course you will be able to audit and lead audits yourself to the current standard once you have completed and passed the course and the examination. 

Who should attend?

This is intended for those who lead audits of ISMS checking conformance with ISO/IEC 27001:2005. 


You must have attended and passed BSI’s ISO/IEC 27001:2005 Lead Auditor training course or an equivalent with another recognized training organization. To verify this, we will ask you for a copy of your certificate award.
