ISO 27001:2017 Internal Auditor

ISO 27001 is the best-known standard providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). Regulation (EU) 2016/679 General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR entered into force in May 2018 and places direct data processing obligations on organisations at an EU-wide level. ISO 27001 is an excellent framework for compliance with EU GDPR. Thousands of internal audits are performed each year providing little internal business benefit. This course focuses on auditing ISO 27001 for real improvement and performance rather than just conformance.
