This page gives a general overview of Zygma's training courses and the scheme under which Personal Certification of attendees on these courses is operated and Accredited.

Certification and Training Overview

All courses offered are available under the oversight of the Professional Evaluation and Certification Board, which is in the closing stages of its Accreditation by ANSI (American National Standards Institute) as a Personal Certification Body, accredited against ISO/IEC 17024 and also itself certified for its conformity to ISO/IEC 27001.  All courses, with the exception of the one day ISO/IEC 27001 Introduction, provide formal Personal Certification on successful completion of an end-of-course examination.  Furthermore ALL courses come with a manual and a certificate of participation which has Continuous Professional Education (CPE) value (variable, according to the specific course selected).

Zygma's tutors all hold Personal Certification ISO 27001 Lead Auditor qualifications, have passed PECB's Lead Auditor examination (the most demanding of the range of qualifications offered) and have demonstrated their teaching ability to PECB's satisfaction.  All are ISO 27001 practitioners and operate in accordance with PECB's Code of Ethics.  Zygma's principal tutor, Richard G. Wilsher, is the technical lead in the USA's delegation to ISO JTC1 SC27 WG1, the body which develops and maintains the ISO 27000 family of standards.  He has made significant contribution to the development of these standards and has also been a leading contributor to the alignment of ISO/IEC 27001 and NIST's Risk Management Framework for FISMA Implementation.

Convenient In-house ISO 27001 Training

Training often involves time and cost expended in sending staff to an out-of-town location to receive their training.  This has a number of downsides:

  • Your staff suffer stress and fatigue travelling away from home to be at the training venue
  • The travel denies you the value of your staff being at their place of work and/or takes them away from their family
  • Staff are not on hand if any crisis arises within the business
  • A significant proportion of your training budget is expended on expenses which could otherwise be applied to getting more of your staff trained and certified

Zygma can help you get a better return for your training dollars by coming to you and providing our training in-house.  Expense costs are slashed and, without diverging from the necessary syllabus to ensure that your staff can receive their personal certification, we can tailor the course to your specific needs, helping you turn the learning experience into immediate benefits relating to your organization's circumstances.  Typically, as few as three attendees can make an in-house course a viable option.  To explore how this can work for you please send an email to Enquiries@@Zygma.biz with the subject line 'In-house IS27001 Training', or just call us.

Certified ISO 27001/FISMA Lead Implementer (5 days)

This course is under development.  It will be based on the Lead Implementor course described above but will also draw heavily upon knowledge within Zygma's 'FIZMA' project and will focus on how to implement an ISO 27001-conformant ISMS in a manner which fully embraces the requirements of FISMA and by reference the applicable NIST standards, i.e. SP 800-39 and those others which compose the NIST Risk Management Framework.  The course will not specifically address how to implement the detailed requirements of each of the referenced NIST standards but will identify how the required processes interact and should be organised from an information security management perspective.

If you want to find out the latest state of development of this course and when it will be rolled out, please contact us at Enquires@@Zygma.biz, with the Subject line 'FIZMA Training'.  We will be offering some great deals on the initial piloting of this course and anticipate retrospective personal certification for attendees once the course is ANSI-accredited.
