Organizations today are confronted by a wide range of cyberattacks, and your organization is no exception. There are countless opportunities for hackers to cause massive disruptions, all of which will require a response that will involve you. Cyber Resilience Review is a fast-paced, two-day experience that is built for the experienced professional. The course will provide an understanding of how to address cyber disruptions within a business continuity framework. If you’re in a hurry to take your career to the next level, Cyber Resilience Review (CRP 501) is for you. This short, yet highly effective course will re-acquaint you with the key elements of cyber resilience.

You’ll discover how business continuity and cybersecurity must integrate within every organization, using the five elements of cyber resilience: prepare/identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover. Collectively, these concepts and the resulting action plans will help develop a strategy to effectively respond to unforeseen events and get your organization back up and running as quickly as possible. These two traditionally separate functions must work together, and with this course, you’ll be able to take steps to make that happen in your organization. Doing so will streamline well-coordinated identification, response and recovery from cyber-attacks and data breaches, minimize impacts, protect the organization’s reputation, and give you the professional advantage of bringing the most current information and skills to the table.


1. Provide students with detailed instruction, framework, and guidance for implementing the concepts essential to combining cyber security and business continuity into an effective Cyber Resilience program.
2. Prepare students with actionable recommendations and best practices to represent an appropriate “value proposition” to an organization’s executive management that will help to ensure any investment necessary to step up to a strong Cyber Resilience program.
3. Have students engage in cyber/BCM based practical exercises to help understand the current issues you will face.
4. Share experiences with other professionals.
5. Prepare to pass the Cyber Resilience Examination, so you can be certified as a DRI International Certified Cyber Resilience Professional.
