This course introduces students to the basic principles of an ISMS and how businesses use them to manage the ongoing protection of sensitive information they hold effectively. There are many reasons for establishing an ISMS for an organisation, but one of the main goals is to enable the organisation to manage information security as a single entity, which can be monitored and continually improved on. This course covers information security management in a business context and will give students an understanding of how modern organisations manage the ongoing threats to their sensitive assets.

On successful completion of this course, students will be able to describe what an ISMS is, how one is established, maintained and improved and describe the role that international standards play in developing an ISMS. Students will develop skills such as communication literacy, critical thinking, analysis, reasoning, and interpretation, which are crucial for gaining employment and developing academic competence.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Explore the basic principles of information security management.
  2. Critically assess how an organisation can implement and maintain an Information Security Management System (ISMS).
  3. Appraise an ISMS and describe any weaknesses it may contain.
  4. Examine the strengths and weaknesses of implementing ISMS standards.

There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.

          The course is available as an individual or under Pearson Qualifications (HNC/HND) in Computing. The price will be updated based on the selected option. The individual course fee is higher because awarding body has additional fees for individual enrollment.
