Why Your Team Should Take the PECB ISO 27001 Lead Implementer Course
Your team has seen the rise in information security risks over the past few years and you have been working hard to mitigate risks, but risks continue to arise and you feel like you are always putting out fires? Does this sound familiar? If so, you are not alone. The worldwide information security market is forecast to reach $170.4 billion in 2022, and 68% of business leaders feel their cybersecurity risks are increasing. The reality is that risks will continue to increase and so will attacks.
Developing Your System
Successful business leaders know that developing an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) will provide their organization with added protection, prepare them to be compliant with current and future legislation, as well as protect their brand in the case of an event. Developing an ISMS is not a task to be taken lightly and neither is maintaining one. It is important when deciding to develop an ISMS that a standard is adopted and those team members involved in the implementation and maintenance of the system are trained. The international community has recognized the ISO 27001 standard as a standard that is effective in assisting in the implementation and maintenance of information security processes.
Once an organization has adopted the ISO 27001 standard, to provide the best opportunity for success, a cross-section of people from the organization should be trained. Many organizations have the IT department trained, but a key to success is providing training to leaders in all departments within the organization, be it sales, operations, human resources or accounting, these individuals are dealing with confidential information that needs to be secured. Training opportunities have become more flexible than ever.
Training Your Employees
Training opportunities have become more flexible than ever. For example, PECB ISO 27001 Lead Implementer training is available in both French and English through self-paced learning. The ISO 27001 training courses use video content that is easily accessible through an app, allowing learning to happen from almost anywhere at any time, using a multitude of devices. In addition to the video content, the course has quiz content, and traditional course materials that include a case study, exercises and correction keys.
Using online self-paced learning to ensure multiple members of your team are trained can be a smart decision for both the business and the individuals taking the course. Having access to the training courses 24/7 enables the pace of study to be adjusted based on business needs, meaning that your staff can upskill without halting the progress of your business. Since the course requires no traveling, accommodation, or having to take specific days off from work the training is cost effective, ensuring that the business is not limited in training individuals due to budget.
Efficiency and Accessibility
One of the greatest benefits of the PECB ISO 27001 Lead Implementer training is that the curriculum is designed to ensure that students learn and retain. Every video segment is in approximately 20-minute segments, allowing students to learn in bite-size increments, process and then move forward. Since the course has unlimited access, it allows learners to return to any section of the training course required. Finally, after completion of the course, learners can take an exam. Once successfully passed, learners are able to obtain the “PECB Certified ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Implementer” credential, which demonstrates practical knowledge and the ability to implement an ISMS based on the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001. Developing and training staff on how to implement an ISMS should be part of an organization’s cybersecurity, information and corporate training plan. Once your team has developed their ISMS, you can then choose a leader to train to conduct internal audits or prepare for external audits through taking the PECB ISO 27001 Lead Auditor training course. In time, an employee may want to take their skills to the next level and complete additional PECB courses such as the PECB ISO 30001 Risk Manager training course.
