This four-hour, case-study based course will bring you current on DRI’s Professional Practices for Business Continuity Management, the most utilized standard and the cornerstone of continuity programs worldwide. The Professional Practices recently underwent an extensive revision and update, and it is critical for continuity professionals to understand what changed, how, and why. This course communicates these substantive changes, and their implications for business continuity programs, using an interactive case study that addresses today’s cyber threats and is loaded with brand new manufacturing and supply chain information. Other new additions include, risk management concepts, legal and regulatory concerns, and utilizing insurance as a risk transfer tool. Missing this course means missing out on key changes to the Professional Practices and to your chosen profession. Register today to keep current.
