The British Computer Society has launched a qualification in information risk management.
The ISEB qualification is aimed at information security and assurance professionals. It uses international standards and takes a hands-on approach to risk assessment and management.
The BCS has accredited Ultima Risk Management to deliver a five-day course leading to the ISEB. Ultima managing director Martin Jones said, "This is the first qualification aimed specifically at risk management. The course has a heavy emphasis on practical exercises."
The syllabus covers concepts and the importance of information risk management, the risk management environment, risk assessment and management stages, and information classification schemes.
The course runs in Bedfordshire and costs £1,815 plus VAT and accommodation if required.
