Certified Information Security Management (ISO 27001) Foundation

About Information Security Management Certification

GSDC's Certified Information Security Management (ISO 27001) Foundation Certification has an end goal to share the knowledge about controls that an organization needs to implement to ensure that it is sensibly protecting the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of assets from threats and vulnerabilities. By extension, ISM includes information risk management, a process that involves the assessment of the risks an organization must deal with in the management and protection of assets, as well as the dissemination of the risks to all appropriate stakeholders.

This requires proper asset identification and valuation steps, including evaluating the value of confidentiality, integrity, availability, and replacement of assets. As part of information security management, an organization may implement an information security management system and other best practices found in the ISO/IEC 27001 standards on information security. The Information Security Management (ISO 27001) Foundation is specially curated to shape the professionals in a way that they can handle threats, vulnerabilities, and mitigation.

This certification empowers the participants to create, implement, communicate and evaluate any organization's security policies, procedures, and objectives in order to achieve a better guarantee of an organization's overall information security.
