COURSE OVERVIEW
Disasters could cripple your organization, suspending mission-critical processes and
disrupting service to your customers. These disasters could be man-made or natural
in nature.
The Business Continuity Plan addresses an organizations ability to continue
functioning when normal operations are disrupted.
A Disaster Recovery Plan is used to define the resources, action, tasks, and data
required to manage the business recovery process in the event of a disaster. In this
workshop you learn to identify vulnerabilities and implement appropriate
countermeasures to prevent and mitigate threats to your mission-critical processes.
You will learn techniques for creating a business continuity plan (BCP) and the
methodology for building an infrastructure that supports its effective
implementation.

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING
Using a carefully selected case study, course participants will:

Create, document and test continuity arrangements for an organization


Perform a risk assessment and Business Impact Assessment (BIA) to identify
vulnerabilities

Select and deploy an alternate site for continuity of mission-critical activities


Identify appropriate strategies to recover the infrastructure and processes
Organize and manage recovery teams
Test and maintain an effective recovery plan in a rapidly changing technology
environment

Sample Case Studies:

A major Middle Eastern bank has been experiencing tremendous growth and management feels that
their current BCP and DRP plans outdated. In this case study the delegates with perform a business
impact analysis, based on interviews with key company stakeholders and subject matter experts, and
outline which business areas are the most critical and in need of improved continuity and recovery
plans.

A manufacturing company is considering implementing a disaster recovery plan but does not know
which disaster recovery approach they should implement. In this case study the delegates with study
the business enterprise, perform a risk analysis, and determine if a hot site, cold site, warm site, or
another disaster recovery method is the best approach.
