Being in business means taking risk

For many reasons, your organisation needs a Business Continuity Plan and proper Information Security and Risk Management framework/practices, for example for regulatory requirements (e.g. direct/indirect APRA, Government, Central Bank compliance), to meet customer expectations, for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), to meet industry standards (e.g. ISO), to achieve a better/cheaper insurance arrangement and/or for general peace of mind!

Whether or not you have experience in Business Continuity, Information Security and Risk Management, we offer courses for all levels and none of these have a formal prerequisite. Some experience is useful but not essential.

Our best practice training programs are all you need to know to take the headache out of Business Continuity, Information Security and Risk Management…
