“BRCCI’s approach to business continuity, (IT) disaster recovery and the overarching business resiliency that so many organizations aspire to achieve, is a sensible and realistic approach. I feel that the training I received covers the spectrum of what a Business Continuity professional needs in order to rightly implement and manage a business continuity program and the associated plans.”

TESTIMONIALS

“As Information Technology Officer, and Business Continuity Coordinator for Julius Baer Bank & Trust (Cayman), I found the information provided in the classroom to be instructional, invaluable and well presented. With this new understanding of the complete Business Recovery Process and the methodology behind it, I am now able to lead teams to redevelop our BCP and provide my organization with a state-of-the-art Business Continuity Plan and program. Many thanks to the BRCCI Team!”
– L. S., Julius Baer Bank & Trust Company Limited.

“Since I attended my training classes with BRCCI, I have been able to establish a program within my organization as opposed to a position for DR and Service Continuity, moved up to the next pay tier, hire a new staff member, as well as manage a roadshow where I use the information that BRCCI provided me to educate my colleagues right up to senior level management about DR, Service Continuity, Business Resilience and how my organization compares to industry standard. Feedback that has been given is that my roadshow presentation is valuable, compelling and that it actually gives incentive to rectify some gaps that are rather significant. Essentially, given my previous experience and my knowledge garnered from the BRCCI courses I have been able to breathe life into this subject at my organization and somehow I make it interesting and am able to engage the right resources to move us forward to more mature model. I thank you for your help in that.”
