Some of the major topics that we're going to cover in this course are managing physical, logical, technical, and organizational security risks; protecting valuable assets with physical security measures; protecting valuable information assets with appropriate access controls; identifying vulnerabilities and defending against cyber attacks, and managing a disaster with business continuity measures. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basic concepts outlined in the Managing Information Security Threats and Risks ISO/IEC 27002 course and the Managing Information Security Incidents ISO/IEC 27002 courses, found here on Pluralsight. com. This information security incident course builds on these foundational concepts.

Managing a Disaster with Business Continuity Measures
Welcome to the module titled Managing a Disaster with Business Continuity Measures. The objectives of this module include concepts like hoping for the best but planning and preparing for the worst, identifying proactive steps needed to recover from a cyber attack, identifying requirements to keep the business running, understanding the difference between business continuity and disaster recovery, and finally understanding the importance of practicing your recovery plans. In order to teach you about these objectives I'm going to be covering the following topics. The first one is business continuity. What is business continuity, how do you prepare for it? Then we're going to take a look at disaster recovery and how does disaster recovery relate to business continuity. And then finally we're going to wrap up by talking about planning and testing our disaster recovery plans. Now it's time to dive into the world of business continuity.
