About this event

Course Overview:

Information Security is a critical topic given the huge amount of information that is handled electronically and the associated Risks of mobile communications, the internet, portable storage devices and cybercrime. However, implementing effective security is a challenge because the topic is complex and technical, poorly understood and often not addressed in a business-like or systematic manner.

This Course provides a broad range of stakeholders with an appreciation of how to drive the implementation of an effective information security improvement program driven systematically by business needs. Using an “information security Management system” approach combined with governance and Management Practices will enable participants to ensure that implementation has appropriate support from board level and senior executive Management and addresses security in a sustainable and practical way.

The Course is based on COBIT 5 and ISO/IEC 27000 Principles but at a level that can be understood by everyone, not just governance or technical security experts.

Target Audience:

This Course is aimed at business and IT managers, auditors, and consultants as well as Information Security professionals
