International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ)

IBITGQ is a not-for-profit association dedicated to providing global training, certificated qualifications, and continuing professional development for information security, business resilience, and IT governance professionals.

IBITGQ is an examination board that specifies the syllabus and learning outcomes required for the training courses and exams associated with IBITGQ qualifications. It is also responsible for appointing certificated training organizations (ATOs), which develop their own training material to meet the requirements of each syllabus, and is independently certificated by GASQ (Global Association for Software Quality) as meeting these requirements.

IBITGQ qualifications are certified by GASQ, which is fully certificated to the ISO/IEC 17024:2012 standard (Conformity assessment – General requirements for bodies operating certification of persons).

All IBITGQ training courses are created by IT Governance. These courses are part of the unique ISO 27001 Implementation Learning Pathway, which was created by leading ISO 27001 experts Alan Calder and Steve Watkins. This pathway includes the introductory ISO27001 Certified ISMS Foundation course and our internationally renowned ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer and Lead Auditor courses.


IBITGQ-approved courses and examinations are:

  • Known as the ‘practitioner’s qualification’, combining an academic and practical approach
  • Certified by GASQ, an independent exam body certificated to ISO 17024
  • Global industry benchmarks for IT governance qualifications, with structured syllabuses and learning outcomes
  • Designed to maximise time effectiveness and reduce time away from the office
  • Delivered live online, or via distance learning to be flexible and allow access from anywhere in the world
  • Part of learning pathways with Foundation and Advanced levels to support future training.

Certified GDPR Practitioner Training Course

“I recently had the privilege of attending one of Steven’s ISO27K Lead Implementer Master classes. Following many recommendations I had high expectations. I was not disappointed. Steve was an excellent instructor and took the time to weave the individual interests and concerns of each of his students into the delivery of the course.

As a former Instructor I cannot commend him highly enough. As a student - he and IT Governance exceeded all expectations. Thank you.”

- Kevin Ingleby, Intranos Ltd

Certified ISO 27001 ISMS Lead Implementer Training Course

“The course was one of a kind and no book can replace the instructor’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.”

- Andre De Coninck, Van Doorne N.V

Certified ISO 27001 ISMS Foundation Training Course

“A good introduction to an important subject that affects all of us and that is becoming more important in today's shrinking world. Sensible, pragmatic and value-adding!”

- Howard Overy, Head of IT Performance, BAA plc

In-house Training

“IT Governance was able to provide us with an excellent training course on CISSP. Geraint Williams was able to convey the material in a very comprehensive manner but at the same time highlighting key points and emphasizing on our individual weaknesses. The training was not about just passing the test but more to understanding the material further developing our knowledge in the security field.”

- Nikolaos Pavlidis, University of Bedfordshire
