Are you and your team members prepared for a business disruption? Natural disasters, technology glitches, human failures, 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. In addition, you will learn how to address critical 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 to identify your organization’s significant risks and create an effective plan to address these contingencies.

Today’s technology-dependent organizations must have a plan for operating when facilities, power, communications, or technology fail or become compromised.
