EC-Council Disaster Recovery Professional™ V3
EC-Council Disaster Recovery Professional (EDRP) is a comprehensive professional course that teaches students how to develop enterprise-wide business continuity and disaster recovery plans. EDRP provides the professionals with a strong understanding of business continuity and disaster recovery principles, including conducting business impact analysis, assessing of risks, developing policies and procedures, and implementing a plan. EDRP teaches professionals how to secure data by putting policies and procedures in place, and how to recover and restore their organization’s critical data in the aftermath of a disaster.
As the use of IT as a key business enabler continues to propel businesses to serve the global markets, the need to be prepared to manage any major disasters or downtime becomes increasing relevant and important. Recent reports indicate that a significant proportion of businesses do not have proper plans in place and hence are putting their brands, services and customers at risk.
A Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Plan – sometimes referred to as Business Process Contingency Plan (BPCP) – describes how an organization is to deal with potential disasters. Just as a disaster is an event that makes the continuation of normal functions impossible, a disaster recovery plan consists of the precautions taken so that the effects of a disaster will be minimized, and the organization will be able to either maintain or quickly resume mission-critical functions.
Typically, disaster recovery planning involves an analysis of business processes and continuity needs; it may also include a significant focus on disaster prevention. Disaster recovery is becoming an increasingly important aspect of enterprise computing. As devises, systems, and networks become even more complex, the number of things that can go wrong have increased exponentially.
Appropriate plans vary a great from one enterprise to another, depending on variables such as the type of business, the processes involved, and the level of security needed. Disaster recovery planning may be developed within an organization or purchased as a software application or a service. It is not unusual for an enterprise to spend 25% of its information technology budget on disaster recovery.
The BC/DR segment is poised for dramatic growth over the next decade with the need for BC/DR solutions and skilled professionals growing rapidly in demand globally. According to market reports, the disaster recovery market size is estimated to grow from USD 1.68 Billion in 2016 to USD 11.11 Billion in 2021.
