I attended the ISO 27001 Lead Implementer course to better prepare myself for an upcoming project. That project is designed to gain ISO certification for one of our critical systems. The course built successfully on knowledge I had already acquired through self-study. The course material helped to clarify many items I was unclear on. Alan understands his subject well. He delights in sharing that knowledge with his students. As an on-line course this brought many regions, cultures, and organizational climates together. That global perspective really added to the dynamics of the learning experience. The pace was comfortable, we kept the established schedule, and the knowledge transfer was very effective. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to gain a deeper knowledge on ISO 27001.

This was an excellent class. Alan is an accomplished instructor in terms of lecturing ability and sheer knowledge. The accompanying materials are equally as useful as the discussion. Great!

This was my first ‘remote’ training experience. I must say that ITG really has executed all aspects of technology, content delivery and process very effectively. It was such a great pleasure to have the opportunity to attend a course with attendees from other countries and regions. I am thankful to have had the time with the instructor (Alan) with such expertise and teaching talents. I have a MUCH better understanding of ISO 27001 implementation/ ISMS application despite previous experience. The course has not only improved my current knowledge level, but has also provided insights regarding areas in which I need more focused study. It was very beneficial to have the material to review ahead of the time as well. Thank you!

The course was one of a kind and no book can replace Alan’s experience, teaching and insight. He’s a true expert on the subject and transformed my understanding of ISO 27001 into a comprehensible, useful and applicable tool and framework. I was afraid it would be a boring course, but not one dull moment with Alan. Time flew and I had many AHA moments.
