    ISO 27001:2022 certification roadmap

    When it comes to pursuing ISO 27001:2022 training, there are four steps along the way, however every step has its own value and can support you in diverse ways throughout your career and your organisation.

    Every training course end with a formal exam which ensures that you gained the required skills and knowledge of every level on which you will be training.

    The ISO 27001:2022 Awareness training

    The first training for ISO 27001:2022 is the awareness course. This course takes you from knowing little to nothing about the standard to understanding the foundation, clauses and processes involved in establishing an ISMS.

    We recommend starting with the awareness training to ensure that you have a good grasp on the language used and expectations if you do decide to become an implementor or SAATCA registered lead auditor.

    The ISO 27001:2022 Internal Auditor training

    If you do choose to become an ISO 27001:2022 auditor your next step will be the internal auditor training, which will teach you the skills and knowledge to perform internal ISMS audits within your organisation.

    This training ensures that you will be able to ensure that all ISO 27001:2022 clauses and requirements are being met within your organisation. Being able to provide internal audits will help your organisation save costs and help you stand out in your team.

    With the implementation training you will be able to help your organisation implement and maintain an information security management system. You will be trained to help the organisation stay compliant with local and international data requirements, saving the organisation time, costs, and unnecessary fines. The lead implementer course is also a prerequisite for the Lead Auditor course.

    Although it is recommended to first start with the in-depth awareness training, our implementer training will take you through the basics and foundational touch points of an ISMS. The implementation training is only applicable if you are interested in establishing, implementing, and maintaining an ISMS for an organisation.

    The ISO 27001:2022 Lead Auditor training

    If you decide to become an SAATCA registered lead auditor, you would have needed to complete the awareness , internal auditing, lead implementer and lead auditor training to ensure you have all the knowledge and skills required to pass your exams. Our Lead Auditor training is a 5 day in-person course conducted in a classroom with direct access to one of our expert facilitators.

    Our lead auditor training ensures that you will be able to perform an Information Security Management System audit on 2nd and 3rd parties. Training will be based on practical exercises, and you will be able to master various auditing techniques and become competent to manage an entire audit program, audit team, communication with customers, and conflict resolution.
