CIS Series of Courses:
Information Security Auditor acc. to ISO 27001


“Top instance” for information security



The Series of Courses "Information Security Auditor" is the ideal supplement for trained IS Managers. For as an auditor, you can conduct all internal audits yourself and optimally prepare a company for external audits by using the methods imparted in the course. As an IS Auditor, you are the “top instance” for information security management systems (ISMS) within the company. You will review information security for its conformity to the standard and elaborate opportunities for improvement before the CIS Certificate acc. to ISO/IEC 27001 is granted or prolonged. Internal audits stand the test as powerful tools to sustainably increase profitability and efficiency of the ISMS. CIS is accredited for personnel certification by the Austrian Ministry for Economic Affairs. This means the Certificates for Individuals are documents recognized on a national and international scale.
