You can learn almost anything online about information security and implementing a management system, much of the time at little or no cost. Part of the problem is that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing and you can easily get poor advice as much as good guidance too.
Free rarely does mean free, and the opportunity cost can be high in areas of information security management. Some online eLearning providers propose guidance about cybersecurity that is now out of step with increasingly good cyber hygiene. Take password best practices. It used to be that best practice was the frequent change of passwords whereas current guidance from NCSC is about keeping a strong password changed infrequently (unless it has been compromised).
Online eLearning for information security management based training is a popular way of learning about ISO 27001. This type of training comes in two general forms; seminar/webinar-based and online courses. Online courses can offer the freedom to learn about information security at your own pace. Being less restricted by a classroom environment provides the structure for a more independent method of learning.
Online seminars introduce the missing classroom environment from an online course, simulating the experience within a virtual space. This is where an alternative version of face-to-face training can exist. In similar fashion to an actual classroom, online seminars offer structured learning with the objective to learn about ISO 27001 certification and the ability to attend sessions from any suitable location.
We’ve made more ISO 27001 progress in the last 2 weeks using ISMS.online than we have in the past year.
Whether you choose to look further for online ISO 27001 information security management training or the physical classroom alternative, the underlying aim should be to ensure you are delivering the organisation goal.
That goal is likely to be around the implementation of ISO 27001 or its ongoing improvement.
There are better ways to get that result whilst integrating personal learning and development into the actionable delivery of the organisation goal.
