In most organizations, the processes that deliver products and services depend on information and communication technology (ICT). Disruption to ICT can therefore constitute a strategic risk, damaging the organization’s ability to operate and undermining its reputation. The consequences of a disruptive incident vary and can be far-reaching and might not be immediately obvious at the time.

ISO 27031 is a recently released international standard. It provides recommendations for information and communications technology (ICT) continuity management based on ISO 22301 and ISO 27001. This course focuses on the technical and procedural issues surrounding ICT Service Continuity & Disaster Recovery examining the major pitfalls and common assumptions which prevent both Service Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans from working.
