Training programme ISO 27001 - NBN-certified information security professional

Both large and small organizations today manage a huge amount of sensitive data. The Belgian and European governments are responding to this by imposing strict rules, such as the recent GDPR legislation. In the meantime, it is best to take into account possible cyber attacks or data breaches. How do you maintain control over all this? An information security management system (Information Security Management System or ISMS) based on ISO / IEC 27001 offers the answer.
