Committed supply chain partners develop, use, evaluate, improve and audit their management systems. Gain the tools necessary to conduct and lead process and system audits to determine conformity to ISO 28000.

This class delivers the skills and knowledge required by the Security Management System team to achieve and keep certification. Learn the requirements of ISO 28000 and how to relate the requirements to your Security Management System. This class particularly addresses organizations operating combined management systems (one business management system conforming to multiple system standards beyond ISO 28000, for example: ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ANSI Z-10/BS OHSAS 18001).

We offer this and other ISO course online in our LIVE (Learning In a Virtual Environment) format. Learn more about this format here.
