About the course

ISO/IEC 27001:2022 provides the framework to ensure your organisation has robust security processes and controls so you can meet supplier, customer, and regulatory expectations in data protection.

The standard was updated in October 2022, published with its Annex A incorporating the controls outlined in ISO/IEC 27002:2022, released in February 2022. The updated standard also made changes to some management system clauses, making some requirements more explicit and aligning them with other Annex SL standards, such as ISO 9001. 

Our 5-day Information Security Management Systems Lead Auditor course outlines the key changes to the 2022 update of the standard. We show you how to audit an Information Security Management System in accordance with ISO 19011:2018 and give you comprehensive and practical understanding of the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2022. 

An information security management system such as ISO/IEC 27001 can protect information assets such as customer details, sensitive corporate information, and financial data safe from cyber-attacks and inspires confidence from key stakeholders. 

This course has the equivalent of 40 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

Plus, you receive a complimentary licensed copy of:

  • ISO/IEC 27001:2022 Information security, cybersecurity and privacy protection — Information security management systems — Requirements.

    After successful completion of the course, you’ll gain access to a suite of downloadable resources including templates and checklists
