ISO 27017:2015 Cloud Data Protection Introduction

ISO 27017 is an international standard that centres around implementing policies into your Information Security Management System (ISMS) that helps build resilience in your organisation’s cloud-based services and providers. Our cloud data protection training course includes an overview and analysis of ISO 27017:2015, providing an understanding on the key requirements and benefits to your organisation. This one-day course includes insights into how certification extensions can be implemented within your organisation and deployed as part of a wider ISMS. Our expert trainers will also explain the benefits that come from following the guidance within these standards to address cloud computing controls and protecting personal data in line with regulatory requirements such as GDPR. You’ll learn how to implement effective cloud-based data controls and secure data in line with ISO 27017 specifications. ISO 27017 was created by the International Organization for Standardization.
