Overview

The EDRP certification is aimed at educating and validating a candidate’s ability to plan, strategize, implement, and maintain a business continuity and disaster recovery plan.

From 9/11 to Hurricane Katrina to the recent WannaCry fiasco, the business community has been hit repeatedly by one disaster after another in the past decade and a half. The scary part is that the frequency is increasing exponentially in the past few years, thanks to the growing number of cyber-attacks.

Even scarier is the study that shows that 2 out of 5 business still do not even have a disaster recovery and business continuity plan. And out of the ones that do, only about half of them even test it regularly to see if it is still relevant. Furthermore, industry experts have reiterated the fact in every forum possible, that the size of the business is irrelevant to having a recovery and business continuity plan. Everyone needs to have one to stay relevant in current times.

This scenario can only be amended by trained BC/DR professionals who not only understand the gravity of the situation, but also are equipped to ensure that businesses are least impacted when a disaster strikes.
