Course Description

Organizations today are confronted by a wide range of cyberattacks, and your organization is no exception. There are countless opportunities for hackers to cause massive disruptions, all of which will require a response that will involve you. That’s why this course is an absolute must. More than just another statement of the problem, Cyber Resilience for the Business Continuity Professional is an information-packed four-day experience that will provide an understanding of how to address cyber disruptions within a business continuity framework. You’ll discover how business continuity and cybersecurity must integrate within every organization, using the five elements of cyber resilience: prepare/identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover. Collectively, these concepts and the resulting action plans will help to develop a strategy to effectively respond to unforeseen events and get your organization back up and running as quickly as possible. These two traditionally separate functions must work together, and with this course, you’ll be able to take steps to make that happen in your organization. Doing so will streamline well-coordinated identification and response to attacks or data breaches, minimize costs, protect the organization’s reputation, and give you the professional advantage of bringing the most current information and skills to the table.
