Five reasons to become an accredited IBITGQ training provider 

There is a common misconception that years of practical experience built on the foundations of quality tertiary education are enough to achieve a professional certification. Training courses offered by accredited training organisations (ATOs) using the syllabi developed by a certification body such as IBITGQ can provide the detailed practical and theoretical knowledge of the specific domain that may not be attainable through a tertiary qualification or years of hands-on experience. Furthermore, as the business environment develops, so too do the processes and systems through which training providers adapt their courseware, developing new and efficient methods to achieve better results.

Here are five reasons to consider IBITGQ’s portfolio of information security, cyber security, IT governance and privacy certifications.

  1. Certification leader: Leadership within the certification sector has been claimed by many certification bodies. However, only IBITGQ can claim to have been the first to develop and implement essential information security certifications such as ISO 27001:2022 ISMS qualifications. These were first-to-market certifications developed by information and cyber security subject matter experts (SMEs). IBITGQ continues to introduce first-to-market certifications to support compliance with new laws and regulations and to meet specific demands within the market. This gives training organisations the competitive advantage of offering first-to-market professional certifications.

  2. Direction through clutter: There are a huge number of professional certifications that cover various learning domains, and within those domains another multitude of professional certifications, which can be applied to specific functional areas, laws and regulations. The question is: which certification is appropriate? IBITGQ develops and implements regulation- and sector-specific professional certifications that are built on the foundations of ISO management systems within the context of the specific law or regulation. IBITGQ directs people and organisations through the clutter to specific areas of learning that are either required or in demand.

  3. Increased offering: Many training organisations have a limited number of in-demand certifications available in information security, cyber security, IT governance and privacy. The addition of IBITGQ certifications to a training organisation’s portfolio has many benefits:

    • Demonstrates a commitment to security, risk and compliance practices to its business partners, customers and affiliates.
    • Increases the training organisation’s portfolio to meet the growing demands for specialised certifications.
    • Expands the expertise of trainers in complex disciplines.
  4. Expanding and complementing training and certifications: ATOs that already offer information security, cyber security, IT governance and privacy training have the foundations to easily adapt IBITGQ’s certifications. There are specific ISMS, cyber security and privacy training and certifications in demand, which a training organisation may consider adding to its portfolio first. This provides an opportunity to grow the portfolio through complementary certifications and training. For example, where an ATO offers IBITGQ’s ISO 27001 ISMS training to customers that operate within the EU, the customer may also require ISO 27701 PIMS training to complement ISO 27001.

  5. Quality: IBITGQ certifications are developed by leaders and SMEs in the fields of IT governance, cyber security, information security, and data privacy and protection, and are accredited to the highest international standards.

IBITGQ offers training organisations the opportunity to become IBITGQ ATOs as the demand for information security, cyber security, IT governance and privacy certifications increases. IBITGQ also offers the opportunity to become training providers of first-to-market certifications as new laws and regulations are implemented. Training organisations will need to meet prerequisites to conduct training and will be subject to audits, which is standard procedure within the sector.

IBITGQ has certified more than 13,000 people in just over a decade from some of the largest international organisations. This reduces skills gaps, helps organisations with regulatory compliance requirements, and improves risk mitigation and responsive practices, contributing to a safer, adaptable and growing business environment.
