EXIN and QT&C Unlock Solutions for U.K.'s Information Security Concerns

UTRECHT, The Netherlands, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- EXIN and QT&C are working together in delivering ISO/IEC 27000 training and qualifications to several major U.K. private and public sector organisations including central and local government, National Health Service and police. EXIN, the Examination Institute for Information Science, will provide the independent examinations to ensure these organisation's workers have acquired a solid understanding of information security issues during the QT&C training sessions. Businesses and public sector organisations have recognized that addressing information security concerns is critical to the survival and success of any venture and are seeking out professional training to increase employee awareness.

Experienced in security trainings

QT&C, a leader in information assurance and compliance training, is spearheading the introduction of the new EXIN qualification program in Information Security based on ISO/IEC 27002. QT&C has earned official EXIN accreditation becoming the premier training organisation in the U.K. to offer this program.

"ISO/IEC 27002 provides the measures for implementing an information security framework under ISO/IEC 27001 for any organisation concerned with ensuring that it selects adequate and proportionate security controls to protect its information assets," said Nigel Landman, Chairman, QT&C Group. "Formal training and certification enhances those individuals requiring a general awareness, for their interaction with security needs on a day-to-day basis, and those requiring specific knowledge for interpreting the requirements of the standard to meet the organisation's business needs."

Security awareness at all levels

The information security qualification program has a very practical character. The independent EXIN certification in ISO/IEC 27000 is based on the realisation that every employee is responsible for the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information. Certified employees who are aware of the importance of information security are essential to the organisation's success, and organisations that have trained staff will satisfy compliance regulations easier and faster.

The exams are based on ISO/IEC 27002 which is the Code of Practice (practical guidelines) from the ISO/IEC 27000 series - the international and independent quality standards for Information Security Management systems.

Meet the leaders in Information Security

QT&C and EXIN will both be represented at the Infosecurity Europe 2009 event in London from

April 28 - 30. Interested parties can learn more from QT&C about their training courses for information security solutions. EXIN will also be on hand to share exclusive information about the development and plans for the new information security qualification program.
