I have several questions concerning ISO 27001 Lead Auditor Course.
1.- For example if someone has passed this type of course for ISO 27001:2005, can he be the lead auditor for implementation of ISO 27001:2013. Also if someone passes the course for ISO 27001:2013, can he be the lead auditor for the next version of this standard.
2.- My second question is the approximate price of the ISO 27001 lead auditor course .
3.- The next question is the following: Is it necessary to pass the course for internal auditor before taking the course for lead auditor, or you can go straight to the course for lead auditor.
4.- Is ANSI accredited certificate through PECB valid all over the world.
5.- Is English the only language for taking the exam and gaining the ISO 27001 lead auditor certificate, here I am not talking about the attending language of the course.
6.- Can you point me some science conferences in Europe concerning information security standardization.
1.- If you have the course of ISO 27001:2005, and you are Lead Auditor with this standard, generally you need to perform other course for the adaptation to ISO 27001:2013, otherwise you only have the certificate for Lead Auditor ISO 27001:2005, which can give you problems to demostrarte your experience with ISO 27001:2013. Anyway, keep in mind that the Lead Auditor course is not for implementers, please read this article Lead Auditor Course vs. Lead Implementer Course Which one to go for? : https://advisera.com/27001academy/blog/2014/06/16/lead-auditor-course-vs-lead-implementer-course-which-one-to-go-for/
2.- It depends on the company or the trainer, but I think that an estimation can be between $1.000-3000 (40-50 hours)
3.- You can go to the lead auditor course
4.- There are different things. Professional Evaluation and Certification Board (PECB) is an American personnel certification body, while American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is the official US representative of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) which is related to the certification of companies. So, if you are interested in a personal certification, you can perform a PECB official exam, and you will the accreditation of a US company. For more information about certification for persons vs. organizations, please read this article ISO 27001 certification for persons vs. organizations : https://advisera.com/27001academy/iso-27001-certification/
5.- Depends on the company. Probably in your country there are various companies that perform the course/exam that you want in a local language. Anyway, keep in mind that we have resources in various languages, for example you can see this free webinar ISO 27001 Lead Auditor Course preparation training : https://advisera.com/training/iso-27001-lead-auditor-course/
6.- ENISA is the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security, and I think that there you can find information about conferences: https://www.enisa.europa.eu
