This course will introduce you to the process of developing, communicating and testing a disaster recovery plan to avoid potential pitfalls and ensure the continuation of critical business operations in the case of an unforeseeable event.
We will begin by taking a look at a mock scenario of a company which experiences a flood during the normal course of a day. This company does not have a disaster plan in place, and as a result, experiences a huge loss both financially and emotionally.
You will then be introduced to some of the processes and procedures which this mock company (and your company or clients) can utilize to ensure the continuation of critical business operations in the event of an unforeseeable disaster.
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
- Understand the importance of having a corporate disaster plan in place within your organization.
- Understand the basics of how to develop, communicate and test a disaster plan, or also commonly referred to as a business continuity plan
- Understand how to estimate damages which occurred as the result of a disaster
