Information Security Controls Training | ISO 27002

With the growing number of internal and external information security threats, organizations are increasingly recognizing the importance of implementing best practice controls to safeguard their information assets. By implementing and maintaining suitable controls, organizations become less susceptible to information security breaches and the financial and reputational damage they cause.

ISO/IEC 27002 provides guidelines to help organizations select, implement and manage information security controls, taking into account their risk environment. It contains 4 security control clauses, which cover 93 controls. These controls are intended to be applicable to all organizations and represent a minimum ‘starting point’, i.e. additional controls and guidelines can be added as required. The standard supports the concepts and framework specified in ISO/IEC 27001.

This course aims to provide clear and practical guidance on implementing the controls from ISO/IEC 27001 and other relevant management practice guidance.

Who should attend?

Anyone who wants to learn:
• To identify and understand commonly accepted information security controls
• How risks can be reduced to an acceptable level using controls
• How to determine which controls are the most appropriate to implement
• Practical implementation of ISO/IEC 27002 controls
• The benefits and pitfalls associated with the use of different controls

The course is applicable to representatives from any size or type of organization who is, or will be, involved in planning, implementing, maintaining, supervising or assessing information security, as part of an ISO/IEC 27001 ISMS or a standalone system.


We recommend that you have a basic understanding of information security principles and terminology.

We also recommend that you have an understanding of the information risks faced by their organization.

A basic understanding of ISO/IEC 27001, information technology and information risk management may be an advantage.
