How an ISO 27001 Foundation course can kick-start your career

Did you know that ISO 27001 qualifications are among the most popular in the world? The Standard describes best practice for an information security management system (ISMS), and achieving an accredited qualification demonstrates to current and future employers that you take cyber security seriously. This is more important than ever with the imminent arrival of new data protection laws, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

An ISO 27001 qualification will give you the practical skills needed to implement and audit an ISMS, making it ideal for anyone pursuing a career in information security.

The Standard has seen a massive boost in popularity across the Gulf in recent years, with the number of certificates more than doubling between 2011 and 2015 in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar.
