During the pandemic, a few things came to light.
While cyber security teams struggled to deal with the exponential increase in attacks, the organization’s exposure to third-party risk increased and managing cyber security awareness across a distributed remote workforce became harder than ever.
In addition, the organization’s perimeter was blurred by home Wi-Fi thru work from home policies, which was made worse by BYOD policies that were enacted without much consideration for cyber security.
COVID-19 also revealed that traditional Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) had to be redesigned to address an ongoing crisis creating the most opportune time for C–level executives and security leaders to rethink cyber security as a core component of their BCP.
Many existing BCPs often exclude cyber security policies and strategies. However, a security breach can result in a business crisis.
Effectively capturing data about experience and response to the breach can help design testing scenarios and recovery environments. In the case of a cyber security breach, this could potentially assist in finding the most effective responses and crisis management strategies.
Today, every business is a digital enterprise, which means that BCPs must address digital threats as well as physical threats. By doing so, real business resilience can be built. Having the fundamentals in place and practice, this course now explores the rehash of the basic to a more robust or resilient practice, more than just a documented plan.
At the end of the training, participants are expected to:
• Understand the key concepts of business continuity and resiliency and equip the skills needed to design a robust BCP, an infused crisis management culture and actionable plans from a strategic, tactical and operational levels.
• Understand how to enhance ISO 22301 BC Management and 22316 BC Resiliency requirements.
• Understand how to protect business ahead of disruption or unforeseen events; thru the implementation and management of the organizations business impact, hazard and vulnerability analysis, moving from traditional risks assessments.
• Learn how to recover business critical functions in crisis situations (cybersecurity attacks, 3rd party intrusions thru the basic concepts and principles of BCM and the BCM process and framework.
