How Prepared Is Your Organisation When The Unthinkable Happens?
Course One: Business Continuity
19 – 20 February 2018 | Dusit Thani Hotel, Dubai, UAE
Course Two: IT Disaster Recovery
21 – 22 February 2018 | Dusit Thani Hotel, Dubai, UAE

Business disruption is increasingly becoming part of an organisation as more of its operations depend on computers and software. The threats are not only external such as natural disasters, pandemics, fire or security breaches, but also internal, such as computer hardware or software failures. The damage could cripple an organisation, suspend operational business processes and disrupt business flows. The result is not only financial loss but also damage to the organisation's reputation as a reliable provider or business partner.

Business continuity management and disaster recovery are key issues for all industry sectors and are recognised as an integral part of good operational management practice. This course provides an interactive exploration of both business continuity management and IT disaster recovery planning; from risk assessment through to post incident activities.

The course will be split into two parts, giving delegates the option to attend the course days which will meet their learning objectives:

  • Course One: Business Continuity (Days One and Two)
