Certified Disaster Recovery Engineer

Level 400 Advanced

A Certified Disaster Recovery Engineer, C)DRE, is the superhero of an information System! When a business is hit by a natural disaster, cybercrime or any other disruptive tragedy, how should the organization react? What if the network infrastructure is taken down? Will the business be able to continue operations? How much will it cost if the business is down during repairs? The answer is found in the Certified Disaster Recovery Engineer certification course. Disaster recovery and business continuity planning is the process of having a professional work with a business to prepare processes, policies, and procedures to follow in the event of a disruption. The C)DRE prepares students to plan and present the latest methodologies and best practices for real-world system recovery.

The C)DRE is a part of this Role-Based Career Path
