Information Security Foundation (ISF) course provides you with a comprehensive introduction to information security management. The course covers a wide range of topics, from fundamental security concepts and terminology to effective information security controls.
During the course, you will familiarize yourself with ISO 27001, the most widely used information security standard that provides requirements for implementing and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS). You will understand what focus areas information security needs to address to ensure appropriate protection against information security threats. With the help of ISO 27001 and its supporting code of practice, ISO 27002, you will gain insight into commonly accepted information security controls. At the end of the course, you will communicate with confidence about information security topics. You will have a good understanding of information security risks, and you will be able to link them with best-practice physical, organizational and technical information security measures.
ISF gives you a solid grounding in information security management principles. The knowledge you build up in this course enables you to follow our Practitioner training and try your hand at complex implementation tasks, such as performing an information security risk assessment and designing an information security awareness program.
