Exam Code: ISO-IEC-Fnd

ISO/IEC 27002 Foundation training enables you to learn the basic elements to implement Information Security Controls as specified in ISO/IEC 27002.  During this training course, you will be able to understand how ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 are related to ISO/IEC 27003 (Guidelines for the implementation of ISMS), ISO/IEC 27004 (Measurement of Information Security) and ISO/IEC 27005 (Risk Management in Information Security). 

The ISO/IEC 27000 series of standards provides best practice guidelines for information security management,risks, and controls within the context of an overall Information Security Management System. These best practices are not covered in ITIL. ISO/IEC 27002 is closely aligned with the ISO/IEC 27001 Standard and serves as a practical guideline for all members of staff as they initiate, implement and maintain an Information Security Programme.
