Additional Course Information

Our Course vs. Our Competitors Why is our course the best?

Working with a Case Study: Almost Full Documented ISMS Management System

Why is this important?

Each Learner will audit the almost full documented Integrated ISMS Management System from the unique Kelmac Group® assurance perspective.

The Kelmac Group® assurance perspective is unique as we audit like many professional financial audit practices where the focus is on providing top management with the quality of insight to make decisions and actions aimed at improving performance of the organization.

We boast the most comprehensive documented ISMS Case Study available in the market and provides the Learner with the most realistic practical audit experience available on the market including ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Policy Manual/Statement of Applicability [SoA]; 13 SIPOC processes [Value chain, Support and Management]; 19 procedures; and related documented templates and records.

Live Vs. Facilitated Audit

Which is better?

Some competitors offer a “live” audit as part of their training. However a “live audit” of such short duration (>0.5 day typically) is of limited value as the Learner does not get an opportunity to audit an almost fully documented ISMS. Kelmac Group’s course includes a “facilitated” audit which enables us to truly verify the Learner’s core audit skills through working with an almost fully documented Information Security Management Systems.

Others train followers, we train leaders™
