Data centres are at the core of many organisations. Downtime of applications or the data centre itself could lead to major direct and indirect losses to the business. This has led many organisations to build resilience at various levels such as at the data center infrastructure and at the ICT layer. Fact is that most companies are either overspending – or underspending due to the fact that they have no idea what the cost of downtime is per application and/or the data centre itself.
Without knowing the cost of downtime it would be impossible to determine what level of investment is justified to mitigate the risks of downtime. For this reason many data centres have been built at a potentially Tier-4 level as per the TIA-942, where, as from a business perspective, a Tier-3 level would have been sufficient.
Risk management is the process to identify vulnerabilities and associated threats, to be followed by estimating the level of risk that they may face and how they might impact the organization if these risks were to emerge. Based on international standards (ISO/IEC27001:2005) and guidelines (ISO/IEC 27005:2011, NIST 800-30, ISO/IEC 31000/31010), this course is designed to teach you about to the overall risk management process.
Focus of this course is on both the data centre infrastructure and the physical data centre facility and equipment. You will learn how to identify and quantify risks in your organisation, creating the ability to reduce the risk to a level acceptable for the organization to allow them to make sound investment decisions based on facts rather than emotions. CDRP is a must for every organisation that wants to manage their risk without overspending.
