Today’s increasingly challenging and fluid risk environment requires higher and broader levels of sophistication within the risk practitioner community. Whether a security professional, a risk owner, or a member of a Crisis Management Team or Local Incident Management Team, the ability to understand the complex interplay of risk and resilience is critical in order to effectively protect people, operations, assets, facilities, information, and the business interests and wider reputation of the organization.


Resilience requires technical expertise within the risk practitioner’s core area of responsibility – but to be truly effective practitioners must have a rounded understanding of how resilience and business continuity functions across the boundaries of functions and responsibilities. Leaders have limited time and opportunity to upskill within directly relevant [as well as tangential, but critically important] areas of technical knowledge. Often upskilling comes through experiential learning as crisis situations occur, and this presents a risk for organization’s as practitioners ‘learn by doing’. This also limits the personal and professional growth of the risk practitioner who must wait for a crisis triggered learning opportunity. The result – stagnation of professional knowledge and the risk of failing to perform to optimal levels during a time-sensitive and high-impact crisis experience. As such, accelerated learning opportunities allow leaders to upskill quickly, and so become more effective leaders within the field of organizational resilience and business continuity management. This program seeks to provide critical knowledge and context on core areas of risk, resilience and business continuity within a compressed learning experience for leaders. And, to do so against internationally recognized standards.


The Advanced Organizational Resilience and Business Continuity Management Program offers a blend of instructor led and online training which provides a continued learning journey for leaders. The instructor-led course lasts between 3-4 days, with attendees also being provided 12-months access to over 90 eLearning modules focused specifically on leadership development within the fields of organizational resilience, security risk management, and business continuity management.  The course also provides 4 internationally recognized certifications through the Institute of Leadership Management [ILM], including:
