Certified ISO 27001 Implementer

3 -day certification course ISO 27001:2013


The Certified ISO27001 Implementer course will teach you how to implement and use an Information Security Management System (ISMS) conform to the ISO27001:2013 standard. You will be fully prepared for the international ISO 27001 exam.


ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 27002 are security norms that clients around the world currently demand. With this qualification, you will be internationally recognised as a security professional who is able to implement an information security management system conform to the ISO27001:2013 standard. This professional achievement will increase both your own and your organisation’s market value.


There are many providers of trainings that prepare you for the ISO27001 exam. These courses, however, focus on exam training. Our experience, by contrast, has shown us that the ISO27001 exam should not be underestimated. Neither cramming nor practicing exam techniques enables you to really learn the material and be able to apply it.


Target audience

This course is aimed at those who are or expect to become engaged in implementing the ISO27001:2013 and ISO27002 standards.


Required knowledge

There is no prior knowledge required to attend this course but we recommend the Information Security Foundation prior to this course.


Exam, course material and certification

The ISO 27001 exam is conducted by the Security Academy and consists of multiple choice questions, open questions and case studies. The course will provide you with all the knowledge you need to pass the exam. Upon successful completion of your exam you will receive an "ISO27001 Implementer" certificate from the Security Academy and you will be able to register for your "ISO27001" title and digital badge. Both the course material and the exam are in English. The course includes:


  • Official course material
  • Exam
  • One year ISO 27001 title and digital badge registration 


  • Module 1 - ISO27001 2013

    On the first day, you will learn about the ISO 27001 standard and find out how it defines and describes the management cycle. We will also look at how implementation of the standard is carried out in practice. The focus of this module is twofold. Firstly, you will become acquainted with the standard. Secondly, you will learn how to apply the standard by drafting a project plan, drawing up policy, carrying out a risk analysis, and writing and implementing or an improvement plan.

  • Module 2 - Implementing ISO27001 2013

    We delve further on day two with a more detailed look at ISO 27001 and 27002. You will learn how implementation can be achieved, and how you can anchor continuous improvement of the information security process in your organisation. This part of the course is highly interactive. Using a case study, you will carry out a risk analysis. Thereafter, the whole class will discuss the controls chosen in the risk analysis, focusing on the practical aspects of their implementation.

  • Module 3 - Implementing ISO27002

    On the last day, we take a closer look at the controls themselves, because although plans and tests are important, it is the controls which actually improve security. We discuss the eleven sections of ISO27002 and the relationship between ISO27002 and ISO27001. We put special emphasis on which risks can be best managed or eliminated by which controls. Lastly, you will learn about the certification process: what it takes to become ISO27001 compliant (and to remain so) and how external assessment is carried out.
