(6 credit hours)

Students will also learn how to develop off-site backups and work areas, and how to get people and equipment in place for continuing operations during an emergency. (6 credit hours)
  • Seminar 3: Developing the Resilient Organization One of the greatest challenges facing a continuity professional is to create a culture that supports organizational resiliency at all levels. The business continuity professional must bring together disparate constituencies to participate in an organization-wide resiliency program. This seminar teaches how to analyze an organization and work within its structure to create continuity policies and procedures. The seminar also examines leadership principles and how to effect change within an organization. (6 credit hours) Seminar 3: Risk Management This seminar examines the various aspects of risk management. Students will learn how to perform a risk assessment and then use that information to do a Business Impact Analysis. Students will also learn how to express risk in terms that will help to inform planning. The process will include defining Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) for response. Students will then learn how to differentiate between different types of control strategies by considering their value, viability, and appropriateness specific to their company. (6 credit hours)
  • Seminar 3: Information Systems Continuity Information systems are the backbone of the modern corporation, and often its greatest vulnerability. Yet very often there is often a gulf within the organization between those responsible for continuity of operations and those responsible for IT systems. This seminar bridges that gulf by providing business continuity professionals with an understanding of information security and IT continuity principles. Students will understand the convergence of physical and information security to support the development of a comprehensive, organization-wide, risk management and business continuity system to supports all functions within an organization. (6 credit hours) Seminar 3: Implementation: Awareness Programs and Testing This seminar discusses the various types of education and empowerment activities that support testing and implementation of a continuity program. Students will learn different training approaches and how to engage and sustain cooperation from management, specialized teams, and general employees. Students will also delve into best practice recommendations for testing and exercising the company plan or isolated components, as well as how to use the results to continually improve the plan over time. (6 credit hours)
  • Meld theory with practice through our unique case study program. In each seminar you will analyze the impact of business continuity systems on your organization, and provide an extensive report on your organization's continuity environment, including recommendations for improvements and increased effectiveness. These six reports will provide invaluable analysis and recommendations to your organization's management, build important relationships, provide immediate ROI for your employer, and help establish you as a business continuity leader. Students have even been promoted before graduation due to the benefits of their recommendations to their employer. Visit the Consultancy Project page for more information.
