IT Governance announces new ISO 27001 training partnership with Jisc


IT Governance, the leading provider of cyber security, privacy and risk management solutions and training courses, is delighted to announce its new ISO 27001 training partnership with Jisc, the not-for-profit membership organisation that provides digital solutions for UK education and research.

This strategic partnership is designed to provide Jisc members with access to more than 20 online and in-house ISO 27001 Foundation and Lead Implementer training courses over the next 12 months. ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the international standard for information security management that helps organisations manage their information security processes in line with international best practice.

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “Having led ISO 27001 implementations since the inception of the Standard, IT Governance is one of the global authorities on ISO 27001, with more than 7,000 information security professionals around the world that have attended our ISO 27001 training courses to date.

“This partnership encourages Jisc members to take responsibility for their data governance practices, understand the need for information security and ISO 27001, and get practical guidance from leading industry experts on implementing controls, procedures and processes to reduce the level of risk within their organisation.”

IT Governance’s ISO 27001 Foundation and Lead Implementer training courses are designed to help information security professionals get a baseline-level understanding of the Standard and its application as well as the knowledge and practical guidance to implement an ISO 27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS). The first full-day ISO 27001 Foundation training course will be held at the Jisc London office in London on the 2 April 2020.

John Chapman, head of Jisc’s security operations centre, said: “Jisc members are responsible for a huge amount of data, and keeping it safe is a top priority. To this end, we encourage and help them to continually review and update their security policies and procedures, which include working towards security standards such as ISO 27001.

“Achieving ISO 27001 certification is a goal that requires considerable resources and commitment. IT Governance will provide training for Jisc members working towards ISO 27001 compliance, and we are delighted to partner with them again.”

IT Governance is responsible for the world’s first accredited ISO 27001 training programme, which offers a learning path with courses from foundation through to advanced level. All courses offer participants the opportunity to enhance their career development by attaining industry-standard qualifications awarded by IBITGQ.
