Cyberattacks are causing increased losses and significant delays in the recovery of mission-critical business functions. A cyber resilience practice can enhance overall resilience and mitigate losses caused by such attacks. That’s why this course is an absolute must. Cyber Resilience is an information-packed, four-day experience that will provide a holistic perspective and understanding of how the entire organization should prepare for, respond to, and recover from cyberattacks.

Through this course, you’ll discover how business continuity, cybersecurity, and mission-critical functions 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 you develop a strategy to effectively respond to unforeseen events and get your organization back up and running as quickly as possible.

Collaboration is essential for a prompt, effective, and efficient response, and with this course, you’ll learn how to make that happen in your organization. Doing so will result in well-coordinated preparation, response, and recovery to cyberattacks and data breaches. As a cyber resilience professional, you’ll not only be giving your organization an advantage against cyberattacks, but you’ll also be giving yourself the professional advantage, bringing the most current information and skillsets to the table.


"I learned more about cyber resilience through the course than I did before. I didn't realize there is more than just cybersecurity that is important in protecting our digital assets in today's world. The course helped me grasp that recovering critical operations during a cyber attack is just as important as preventing a cyber attack...Overall, I highly recommend taking this course." - ACRP, USA

"I have nearly twenty years of business continuity experience [and] yet, I learned a lot about how business continuity blended with cybersecurity is cyber resilience. I recommend this course for every business continuity and cybersecurity professional." - ACRP, USA

"I really enjoyed this training class. The interaction and conversations with both the instructor and the other participants were very helpful and while there is no one size fits all answer to a lot of the complex cybersecurity challenges businesses and professionals face every day, I really feel I left the course in a much better position from a cyber resilience knowledge standpoint than when I started...Excellent instructor and all-round a very good course with a lot of learnings and takeaways to help continue to build resilience into our cyber program at our company." - CBCP, USA
