Preparing for and Conducting Internal ISO 27001 Audits – Recorded Webinar

When implementing ISO 27001, the International Standard for Information Security Management, organisations must follow a process of continual improvement and assure themselves that processes and controls they have implemented are working as intended. This is where internal auditing plays an absolutely pivotal role and getting the balance right regarding the approach (risk-based, process-based, control-based etc.) and how much auditing to provide assurance is vital.
