PECB Disaster Recovery Lead Manager

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).

The PECB Certified Lead Disaster Recovery Manager training course provides an approach to managing a disaster recovery planning project and developing and implementing an information and communications technology (ICT) disaster recovery plan. It equips participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to analyse the incident response plan, emergency plan, and crisis management plan, and conduct disaster recovery testing and performance measurements. By attending this training course, you will be introduced to disaster recovery best practices and will learn how to conduct a risk assessment and business impact analysis (BIA) for disaster recovery.

After attending the course, you are eligible to apply for sitting the exam. If you successfully pass the exam, you can apply for the “PECB Certified Lead Disaster Recovery Manager” credential. This credential will demonstrate your knowledge and professional capabilities to support and lead disaster recovery teams in implementing disaster recovery strategies based on best practices.
