ADIA > ISO 27001 Certification Program 2024

ISO 27001 Certification Program 2024

The program commences in August 2024.

Please register by emailing Theresa MacDonald (ADIA’s Training Coordinator) via the button below.

If you want your organisation to be ISO 27001 audit-ready within 12 months, this is the program for you. ADIA’s heavily subsidised program is the only clear pathway designed specifically for industry.  

The Australian Government’s 2023–2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy is now underway and will impact every business in Australia. ADIA’s new ISO 27001 program is designed to support member organisations (and non-members) on their journey towards compliance with the ISO 27001 standard, meeting the emerging information security business needs for the research, data, and insights industry.

The Australian Cyber Security Centre received over 94,000 reports of cybercrime over the past 12 months, an increase of 23% compared to the previous year.  The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) are trying to reverse this trend.

Malicious or criminal attacks, including ransomware, cyber extortion, scams and digital theft, notified to the OAIC, are the leading cause of data breaches, with 91% of these involved in some form of email interaction.

ISO standards have a global reach in the context of business credibility. For those who choose to be independently audited and certified to ISO 27001, it provides an unequivocal measure of Information Security risk management, cyber-resilience, privacy compliance, and operational credibility worldwide.

ISO 27001 also integrates with the ISO 20252 industry standard to ensure maximum cyber security and minimal system and effort duplication.

This new certification program supports member organisations in implementing the ISO 27001 Standard, meeting the emerging information security compliance requirements for the research, data, and insights industry.   

If you want your organisation to be ISO 27001 audit-ready within 12 months, this is the program for you. This heavily subsidised program is the only clear pathway designed specifically for industry.  

Participating in this program, which prepares your organisation for certification to the ISO 27001 standard, will help you manage your cyber security risk [1].
