Course Overview

Business Continuity Management Course for IT Department & Company

Cybersecurity is a major component in a company’s Business Continuity Plan (BCP). Knowledge, policies, and processes relating to core technologies and the protection of sensitive data are crucial for the IT department of any company to be familiar with, in order to successfully carry out IT Business Continuity Planning.

What is Business Continuity Planning?

Business Continuity Planning is the capability of a company to continue delivering products and services at normal and acceptable levels following a disruptive incident.

Relevance of Business Continuity Strategies in the IT Industry

As the depth and prevalence of digitalisation increases, increasing amounts of sensitive and personal company data are becoming digitally stored. It is paramount that a company deploys an IT service continuity plan so that they are able to better protect the information of their customers, and perform over their competitors in times of crises.

Business Continuity vs Disaster Recovery

Business Continuity focuses on maintaining business operations and operational success during a disaster, while Disaster Recovery focuses on restoring IT infrastructure and access to data after a crisis.
