Course modules

Module 1: Introduction to ISO/IEC 27001:2017

During the first day of the course, the standard is discussed extensively, how it describes the management cycle for information security and how the introduction of the standard is carried out in practice. The focus during this day is on the one hand on acquiring knowledge of the standard and on the other hand on its application by drawing up a project plan and policy, conducting a risk analysis and drawing up and executing the improvement plan.

Module 2 – Implementing ISO/IEC 27001:2017

From day 2 we start moving more in-depth. After a more detailed look at ISO / IEC 27001: 2017 and ISO / IEC 27002: 2017 you will learn how implementation of the standard can be conducted and how to embed continuous improvement of information security process. This part of the course is highly interactive. Based on a case, you’ll perform a risk analysis and the selected measures from the case are discussed.

Module 3 – Measures, compliance, certification process

On this day, the measures themselves are discussed in more detail. Because making plans and testing implementation is absolutely necessary, but ultimately it is the measures themselves that improve security. We discuss the chapters from ISO / IEC 27002, the relationship with ISO / IEC 27001 and especially which measures eliminate which risks (or not). The last topic on the third day is the certification process or more generally: what it means to become and remain compliant with ISO / IEC 27001: 2017 and how an external test is conducted.
