ISO 27001:2013 Internal Auditor Training Course

Training provided and run by a Certification Body (CB). BSI are the National Standards Body of the United Kingdom.

Qualification: This course forms part of our Auditor Qualification programme. To find out more, please visit our training auditor qualifications page here.

 

The BSI Training Academy can teach you the essential knowledge and skills an internal auditor needs, along with the areas your Certification Body (CB) will be generally looking for to comply with generic internal auditing requirements in management system standards. This will include the meanings and intention of certification criteria and associated theories, methodologies, techniques or tools.

This course aims to provide guidance and practical experience in planning, executing, and reporting Information Security Management System audits.

Information security is now recognized as an important business process which, if not managed correctly and efficiently, may impact upon an organization’s ability to deliver its products and services to their customers. Just as important, lack of security has the potential to impact revenues. The highly specialized skills and practical knowledge needed to assess an organization’s capability to manage all aspects of information security is one that can be learnt.

This innovative, two-day course provides a solid foundation in all aspects of the audit process. Stage by stage, delegates are taken through a structured programme that includes a balance of theory and practice. It uses a combination of collaborative learning and practical activities, enabling delegates to gain an understanding of the key activities for auditing.

The British Standards Institution (BSI, a company incorporated by Royal Charter), performs the National Standards Body activity (NSB) in the UK. BSI, together with other BSI Group Companies, also offers a broad portfolio of business solutions other than the NSB activity that help businesses worldwide to improve results through Standards-based best practice (such as certification, self-assessment tools, software, product testing, information products and training). Training courses are provided by BSI as part of its non-NSB services.
