Vital Advisory – DIY ISO27001

Vital Advisory has scheduled a DIY ISO 27001 Implementation Workshop series, and I ask if the Melbourne Chapter could publish details of these to your members. We are also circulating this to other regional Chapters to seek their support as well. We are pleased to offer special rates for all ISACA members @ 15% discount. 

Background: 

ISO 27001 provides a robust and systematic approach to building information security.  However implementation can be a challenging exercise for any business. This workshop series provides a clear do-it-yourself path to an ISO 27001 Information Security Management System for any organisation.

Vital Advisory will offer both face-to-face workshops and live webinars where participants will learn how the components of ISO 27001 build an effective and unified approach to managing information security. We will explore how they can prepare the documentary, procedural and organisational elements of ISO 27001 to achieve certification while also potentially supporting the achievement of other business objectives.

These workshops are planned across three months so that participants can get information and support at every step in the process, as well as an opportunity to have their queries resolved by Vital Advisory.

It would be great if ISACA can assist us to promote these workshops and webinar series.
