ISO certifications for persons do not require previous competences or experiences, so it is possible to take them with this current background.

There are several different ISO 27001 personal certifications available, and you have to choose what is most appropriate for you:

  • ISO 27001 Foundations Course - this is where you learn the basics of the standard, probably the best way to start as a beginner
  • ISO 27001 Internal Auditor Course - this is for becoming the internal auditor
  • ISO 27001 Lead Auditor Course - this is for becoming the certification auditor
  • ISO 27001 Lead Implementer Course - this is for becoming a consultant or an implementer in your own company.

These materials will help you:

2 - Can we work remotely as an aid in audit or iso 27000 implementation projects under these conditions?

Remote work is possible for audit and implementation projects, depending on the scope (some activities like audit or implementation of some physical controls only can be made in loco). You should define these situations with your customers.

Regarding consultancy services, besides information security-related certifications, you also need to consider competencies related to project management, and accumulate experience, either working with another consultant or performing activities in the information security field for a company. You also should consider the Lead Implementer certification.
