General information about this course
Datacenters are at the core of many organizations. Downtime, of applications or the data center itself, could lead to major direct and indirect losses to the business. This has led many organizations to build resilience at various levels such as at the datacenter infrastructure and at the ICT layer. Fact is
though that most companies are either over- or under spending due to the fact that many organizations have not been able to answer basic questions such as what is the cost of downtime being it per application and/or the datacenter 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. This has led to the fact that many datacenters have been built at potentially a Tier-4 level as per the ANSI/TIA-942, where, as from a business perspective, a Tier-3 level would have been enough.

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), CDRP (Certified Data Centre Risk Professional) is a course designed to expose attendants to the overall risk management process.

Focus is on both the datacenter infrastructure and the physical data center facility and equipment; the attendant will learn how to identify and quantify risk in their organization, 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 organization that wants to manage their risk without over spending.

Our Datacenter Certifications are worldwide accredited by EXIN. The training is conducted in collaboration with EPI Training. You can take the CDRP exam on a day by choosing yourself in our Vijfhart Examination Center in Nieuwegein. In preparation for the exam you should consider 8-12 hours preparation time. The exam costs are included in the course fee.
