Knowledge to secure your business.  

IT today is strategic. Get it wrong and the whole enterprise is compromised.

But you can’t get it right if you don’t have the right foundation. And you can’t have the right foundation if you don’t have the right knowledge.

ALC offers an outstanding education program when it comes to Governance, Risk and Security, the three pillars that underpin successful Enterprise IT today. From management overviews that address the key points of concern, to specialist training programs for those with detailed responsibilities, ALC provides the knowledge and education to make a real difference.


Almost every day we get news of yet another drama caused by a security compromise.

How do you make sure it doesn’t happen to you? Start with the foundation. You can’t build a sound building without first doing the architecture. Same applies to security. SABSA® is the global standard for enterprise security architecture. It is distinguished by its business-driven orientation, designed to ensure the security needs of your organisation are met completely and are designed, delivered and supported as an integral part of your IT management infrastructure.

ISO 27001 is the international standard that defines the attributes of a world-class ISMS (Information Security Management System) and how to go about implementing it in your organisation. Anyone serious about information security needs to know about ISO 27001.

CISSP® continues to be recognised as the gold standard for information security, defining the core knowledge that professionals need to master.

Risk management is a primary responsibility of management. Failure to successfully identify and manage risk can have dramatic consequences. And in the digital era, these consequence are an order (or two) of magnitude greater than before.

ALC offers two powerful Risk qualifications: CRISC®, the new qualification that sets the standard for risk and control in IT, and the advanced SABSA® Risk and Assurance program.

In the wake of corporate collapses and Sarbanes-Oxley, the governance of enterprise IT has moved to centre stage. An incredible amount of effort has been put in to come up with answers to how to do IT governance properly. The COBIT® framework, especially since the release of version 5 in 2012, has established itself as the definitive framework for the governance of enterprise IT. The essence of COBIT is the linking of business goals with IT goals, providing metrics and maturity models to measure their achievement, and identifying the associated responsibilities of business and IT process owners.

ALC offers the most comprehensive COBIT 5 training program in Asia-Pacific covering the three levels of Foundation, Implementation and Assessor.
