Course description

ASTA Certificate for Business Continuity Professionals

It is vital as an organisation to fully identify the critical activities with an organisation. The range of risks an organisation could be exposed to and how to optimize Business Continuity in the event of an incident or disaster being realised. In the past BCM was seen in a one-dimensional way in that there was no link to Business Continuity being thought of as providing competitive advantage to an organisation. However, this view has changed over the last 40 years.  This course explores the methodology and practices of effective Business Continuity Management and is aimed at those persons responsible for BCM within their organisation or on a wider scale.

Our training team have membership to the business Continuity Institute and have many years of experience working in Risk Management and Business Continuity roles.
