ISO 27001 LA Course Overview

ISO 27001:2013 Lead Auditor Certification focuses on enabling professionals to actively support organizations in establishing, implementing, managing, and maintaining the Information Security Management System (ISMS) based on the ISO 27001 guidelines.

Most organizations follow strict information security controls. However, to manage these security controls effectively, there has to be a well-structured information security management system (ISMS) in place. Without ISMS, the controls tend to get disorganized.
