Information Security Management Systems (ISMS): Transition Course from ISO/IEC 27001:2005 to ISO/IEC 27001:2013

Are you already familiar with ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and want to find out what has changed in the transition to ISO/IEC 27001:2013?

This course is particularly valuable for individuals directly involved in the planning, implementing, maintaining or auditing of an ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS).

An experienced instructor will explain the new ISO (high level) structure applied to new management systems and then through application: explain the resulting differences between ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and ISO/IEC 27001:2013, while explaining the impact of additions and amendments contained within the new international standard.

The course will also deal with the certification transition where this is applicable to your organization.
