The Practitioner Certificate in Information Risk Management (PCIRM) course is designed to provide foundation knowledge of the terminology and principles of information risk management. It is intended for individuals from information technologies or IT security backgrounds who are embarking on information risk management responsibilities or those who already fulfil information risk management roles who wish to formalise their accumulated experience. It is equally suitable for business managers who need to gain a formal insight into information risk management in support of wider business risk decision-making. The content of the course is aligned to international risk management standards. It thus provides a grounding in the requirements for fulfilment of increasingly mandatory corporate compliance obligations. The InfoSec Skills PCIRM course leads to the PCIRM qualification regulated by the British Computer Society (BCS), which has become an industry-recognised credential for information risk managers.
Why should you attend?
This course will prepare IT and information management practitioners for a formal qualification in information risk management. It provides a grounding in information risk management principles that will assist both technical individuals and business managers to gain a deeper insight into information risk in support of broader business or infrastructure risk management.
Basic knowledge of business or technical process management is expected. Basic conceptual knowledge of corporate ICT systems is expected. Some prior experience of general business risk management would be advantageous but is not essential.
