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.
