ISO 27001 Lead Auditor Overview

This ISO 27001 Lead Auditor training course will provide delegates with the skills and abilities needed to audit ISO 27001 information security management systems. Delegates will learn how to implement audit plans, processes, principles, and techniques. They will also focus on managing auditing teams, performing internal and external audits, how to communicate successfully, and how to overcome conflicts. By the end of this course, delegates will be able to lead, plan, implement, and report on an ISMS audit within an enterprise conforming to ISO 27001 standards, and thus will become auditing experts.


ISO 27001 is all about Information Security Management. The effective security of confidential and sensitive information is essential to the successfulness of a business, so ISO 27001 intends to reduce the likelihood of data breaches. ISO, (the International Organisation for Standardisation), produces documents that determine specifications, requirements, and guidance to ensure that services, products, and procedures are delivered to the appropriate standard, and achieve their primary objective, thus complying to ISO 27001 is significant.


The Knowledge Academy offers 4 ISO 27001 training courses, which can be completed in their order of difficulty. To begin, there is the ISO 27001 Foundation course that needs to be completed firstly, as it is a prerequisite for the remaining ISO 27001 courses. Next in the sequence is ISO 27001 Internal Auditor, followed by ISO 27001 Lead Auditor and ISO 27001 Lead Implementer. These precise Auditor and Implementer training courses ensure delegates become accomplished in the auditing and implementation of information security.
