Our Course vs. Our CompetitorsWhy is our course the best?

Working with a Case Study: Almost Full Documented OHSMS Why is this important?

 

Each Learner will audit the almost full documented ISMS from the unique Kelmac Group® assurance perspective. The Kelmac Group® assurance perspective is unique as we audit like many professional financial audit practices where the focus is on providing top management with the quality of insight to make decisions and actions aimed at improving performance of the organization. 

We boast the most comprehensive documented ISMS Case Study available including a Policy Manual; Statement of Applicability; Asset/Risk Register and Risk Treatment Plan, 13 SIPOC processes [Value chain, Support and Management]; 19 procedures; the organization’s statutory and regulatory and other legal obligations register, and the organization’s risk register, and related documented Information Security templates and records.

 

One System ModelWhy is this important?

 

The one system model is based on utilizing Business Process Management to enhance ISO based Management Systems.

Our course is unlike our competitors as we will outline a methodology for developing and implementing an Information Security Management System based upon the requirements of OHSAS 18001:2007, where the OHSMS is integrated with the organization’s business model. 

Others train followers, we train leaders™

 

More Topics Covered In More DepthWhy is this important?
