Overview

The Certified Lead Disaster Recovery Manager is a four-day training course intended to help participants acquire the necessary expertise to support an organisation in establishing, implementing, and managing a disaster recovery planning project.

Disastrous events, which may be caused by natural, human, or technological hazards, significantly affect an organisation’s ability to reach its objectives. In addition, the operations of many organisations are threatened due to a disaster after they cannot respond to or recover from the disaster adequately. That is why organisations should focus on developing capacities to prevent, anticipate, manage, and recover from disasters effectively through well-planned and tested disaster recovery plans (DRP).
