All organizations face the risk of loss of human life, physical and information technology (IT) infrastructure, business operations and reputation during a crisis or disaster event. Afterwards, an affected organization will need help to return to acceptable and then normal business operations in the hours, days and months following. How resilient an organization is to disruptions in normal operations will determine the degree to which it persists and recovers in the long term. This course provides the framework for these efforts and addresses ten standardized professional practices for business continuity management. Students will learn how to identify the potential threats to an organization, how to determine the potential impacts of those threats being realized and then how to mitigate and plan for them in the operational context, to enable continuance of service and delivery to their stakeholders.
