Demand for cyber security qualifications dictates course offering in IT Governance’s autumn-winter catalogue

IT Governance has reported that the selection of courses in its autumn-winter catalogue has been informed by the growing demand for cyber security qualification

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, October 13, 2014 / -- IT Governance, the global leader in cyber security and ISO27001 expertise, has reported that the selection of courses in its autumn-winter catalogue has been informed by the growing demand for cyber security qualifications.

The company has recently added CompTIA Security+ to its extensive training portfolio that includes ISO27001 Lead Implementer (also available live online) and Managing Cyber Security Risk among others.

According to a recent report from Burning Glass Technologies, the demand for cyber security professionals has grown more than 3.5 times faster than the demand for other IT jobs over the past five years and more than 12 times faster than the demand for all other non-IT jobs.

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, says, “The demand for cyber security professionals is impacted not just by the surge in cyber attacks and organisations’ better understanding of the threats posed by cyber crime, but also by the rising importance of rigorous compliance and implementation. Our courses lead to qualifications that are most sought by employers while providing delegates with the career development they look for.”

According to the SecureWorld Insight Survey 2013, 43% of cyber security professionals rate their position as the most difficult one in the organisation. This is hardly surprising given the speed with which new cyber threats emerge, making it difficult for anyone responsible for the security in their organisation to keep abreast of the cyber criminals.

“As well as keeping on top of new threats and developments, it is essential that cyber security professionals develop skills in best practice management systems. Professionals are wise to consider the collection of competences surrounding ISO27001 implementation and auditing, given the growing local and global importance of this international information security standard.” adds Calder.

IT Governance’s world leading, instructor-led training courses deliver specific learning objectives and provide the ‘building blocks’ to support a progressive and integrated education programme. In addition they have been designed to support the enhancement of careers by awarding industry-recognised certificates from exam bodies that include IBITGQ, BCS, APMG and EXIN.

The IT Governance autumn-winter catalogue is available at

Delegates who book during October 2014, any cyber security training course on the public schedule (until end of March 15), can book themselves or a colleague a place on any ISO22301 course, or our CGEIT course, scheduled to run during 2014.
