ISO27001 Transition Training now available
Information Security experts, Advent IM, today announced the launch of ISO27001:2013 transition training course.
Last year, the de facto Information Security standard ISO/IEC27001 underwent changes and some important alterations have been made to various controls and clauses. This means that organisations who are already certified or compliant to ISO27001:2005 are now having to think about transitioning their Information Security Management System to the 2013 version. Because of this, organisations have increasingly been seeking support in successfully completing this transition. Advent IM, stepped up to the mark after the initial release of the new version, with a tool to help businesses already certified to map the controls and clauses against the 2005 version. But the growth in requests for further support has been marked and the team of specialists at Advent IM were asked to provide a tailored made course for those currently certified or compliant to ISO27001:2005 to transition to 2013.
Advent IM today announced the availability of this bespoke course which will work alongside the mapping tool to support Information Security Managers who are navigating their way through the changes. Advent IM’s track record in both successful certifications and in Information Security training, make it perfectly placed to offer this training. Operations Director, Julia McCarron said, “We were very pleased to be asked to supply this support. It’s great to know organisations continue to take their commitment to quality Information Security Management Systems seriously. ISO27001 has proven to be an enormously helpful framework; its comprehensive nature makes it a solid choice for a holistic approach to securing information assets. The transition to ISO27001:2013 need not be onerous; we are highly experienced with this standard and our vision is to help organisations have as smooth and successful a transition as possible.”
