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.

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