    PwC’s Auditor Training & Certification business recently held an information session for clients and staff on the benefits of their ISO 27001:2013 training course, which teaches auditors the key processes and approaches a business needs to manage information security risks.

“Tom is an incredible presenter! Everything is well explained in great detail. His sense of humour makes the training even better. Thanks!”

“Overall very valuable course. Balance of theory with practical workshops was excellent. Trainers stuck to timetable very well.”

“The course was thorough and many relevant examples provided by both Tom and Jackie to help me apply it to the workplace.”

“Great presentation of the course, engaging facilitators and good use of group work. I found the course to be a great refresher for an audit course I did 10 years ago and now feel more motivated to go audits in a non-bow tie way!”

“Trainers’ knowledge was excellent, their knowledge made the training and learning easy.”
