Welcome to the Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Planning Skills Course & Certification Test
When business is disrupted, it costs money. With the emergence of e-business, many companies cannot survive without operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Therefore, a single downtime means disaster. The ability to run office productivity and enterprise software during this instance is critical. A Business Continuity Plan(BCP) is an overarching plan covering all forms of business process restoration, while Disaster Recovery Plans focus only on IT systems. For example, a BCP should contain a plan for what a business would do if most or all of a management team was suddenly unavailable due to a major disaster. DRP would be dealing with how to get IT systems back up and running in their absence. These intertwined forms of risk management are part of the CISSP exam. The Fundamental BCP/ DRP skills certification test provides a first look at these skills in preparation of that exam. Typically, BCP/DRPs contain 5 steps, which include a variety of sub-sets from emergency response to crisis management, with a scope that extends from a technology perspective to a people perspective. Providing a plan that encompasses both of these aspects is necessary for organizations big and small. Organizations that recognize the importance of Business Continuity Plans, hire roles such as Business Continuity & Risk Manager, or Director of Business Continuity however, these positions typically require one to be a Certified Business Continuity Professional. To get certified, take the BCP/ DRP skills certification test.
