About the course

Since recovery planning is a very complex and labor intensive process, it therefore requires redirection of valuable technical staff and information processing resources as well as appropriate funding. In order to minimize the impact such an undertaking would have on scarce resources, the project for the development and implementation of disaster recovery and business resumption plans should be part of the organization’s normal planning activities.

Course Objectives

A major disaster could cripple your organization, suspending mission-critical processes and disrupting service to your customers. In this course, you learn to identify vulnerabilities and implement appropriate countermeasures to prevent and mitigate threats to your mission-critical processes. You learn techniques for creating a business continuity plan (BCP) and the methodology for building an infrastructure that supports its effective implementation.
