Mon 10 – Fri 14 July 2017

Learn from corporate and academic (incl international) guest speakers, how to protect an organisation DR BCM BCPagainst flood, cyber attacks, supply chain, aviation, chemical and other risks, and achieve better Business Continuity. The annual TU Delft Risk Management Summer Course is always refreshed with the latest best practice and case studies. It’s the perfect way to familiarise yourself with real-life business risks, and how to implement controls to reduce their impact and likelihood. This hands-on multi-faculty 1-week program is being held at the start of summer 2017

Whether or not you have experience in Risk Management, we offer exams for all levels and none of these have a formal prerequisite.

We will discuss generic Risk Management and Business Continuity principles, hear from international guest speakers on a range of relevant threats and study the ISO 31000 and ISO 22301 standards. This special program features the globally popular, world standards on Risk Management (ISO 31000) and Business Continuity (ISO 22301).

We will also touch on Information Security Management (ISO 27001), Supply Chain Security (ISO 28000) and Risk Assessment/Analysis Methodologies (including self-study ISO exam options).
