Overview

Accelerated ISO training, ISO course and ISO certification

The ISO 27001 Lead Auditor course is a PECB (Professional Evaluation and Certification Board) official course. The three-day intensive course will help you develop the skills needed to audit an Information Security Management System (ISMS). You'll also be able to manage a team of auditors, by applying widely-recognised audit principles, procedures and techniques.

PECB is officially accredited under ISO 17024 from ANSI. They are the first personnel certification body to be accredited by a National Accreditation Authority.

You will gain the skills and knowledge needed to plan and perform audits, compliant with the certification process of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard. Through practical exercises, you will learn the following skills:

  • Mastering audit techniques
  • Managing audit teams and audit program
  • Communicating with customers
  • Conflict resolution

This course is right for you if you wish to undertake - and eventually lead - audits of Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). It is also useful if you're interested in the implementation of ISO 27001. You will acquire the expertise to perform an ISO 27001 internal audit, following ISO 19011 guidelines.

You'll also get one year’s free membership of PECB (Professional Evaluation and Certification Board) - which usually costs around £250.

Do you qualify for the ISO 27001 Master certification?

When you have both the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor and ISO 27001 Lead Implementer certifications, you're eligible to apply for the ISO 27001 Master certification.

Prove that you've mastered the implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS). You can apply for the Master certification through PECB, if you have the following:

  • ISO 27001 Lead Auditor certification
  • ISO 27001 Lead Implementer certification
  • Ten years of professional experience (six years in information security)
  • At least 500 hours of ISMS audit experience
  • At least 500 hours of ISMS project experience
