Are you and your team members prepared for a business disruption? Natural disasters, technology glitches, human failures, and even sabotage and terrorism threaten businesses of all sizes today. In this course, you will learn how to develop and implement a business continuity plan (BCP) to help manage the risks associated with business interruptions. You will learn how to manage key issues related to staffing, how virtualization can speed recovery times, and how Cloud-based storage, synchronization, and mirrored databases can help ensure that you always have access to your critical data and applications. Most importantly, you will learn how to identify your organization’s major risks and create an effective plan to address these contingencies.

Today’s technology-dependent organizations must have a plan for how they will operate when facilities, power, communications, or technology fail or become compromised. Unfortunately, many companies learn about critical weaknesses in their infrastructure only after experiencing a critical outage. Participate in this course and learn how to identify, understand, and develop strategies for mitigating critical business interruption risks.


  • Define the goals and activities involved in the creation of a Business Continuity Plan (BCP), and contrast a BCP with a data backup strategy
  • Identify and assess critical risks to a company’s operations
  • Classify identified risks into four timeframes for creating disaster recovery plans
  • Define three different types of data backups and explain the critical differences in how each is created and stored so that it can achieve its desired purpose


Business professionals who desire to reduce the risk associated with business disruptions.
