Business Continuity Management

Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a holistic process that identifies risks, implementing a resilient system for immediate responses in the event of incidents. The objective: to maintain essential activities in adversity through continuity plans, recovery goals, technological solutions and crisis management plans. DRI Italy courses offer the expertise of DRI International, which established the BCM guidelines over 50 years ago. These courses enable professional certification and membership in a community of over 20,000 DRI-certified specialists worldwide. Check out the DRI Italy - Course Calendar 2024 - EN

Cyber Resilience

Organisations face many cyber risks, which require a coordinated response between Information Security, Cybersecurity and Business Continuity Management. These functions must work together in an integrated manner to improve the organisation’s Cyber Resilience. DRI’s Cyber Resilience courses focus on collaboration between these functions, for example by defining continuity plans for conditions when the company’s IT systems are down, such as after a ransomware attack. The courses also offer DRI professional certification. Check the Course Calendar!

IT Disaster Recovery Planning

The growing reliance on digital automation is accompanied by increased threats to information systems, including both traditional risks and new cyber attacks. Both require an IT Disaster Recovery Plan integrated into the Business Continuity Management system to ensure resilience. The DRI course on IT Disaster Recovery Planning focuses on the application of Business Continuity Management to the IT environment, without going into technical solutions. The DRI methodology is fundamental to the definition of the most effective DR solutions. Check the DRI Italy - Course Calendar 2024 - EN
