Firebrand Training has launched a condensed disaster recovery training course, aimed at security professionals.

The five day Disaster Recovery Professional course aims to provide delegates with a basic knowledge of DR, including how to prepare a disaster recovery plan, how to assess risks and how to develop a DR policy.

"We are showing businesses how to minimise the problems and also control the situation if data disappears and the system goes down," said Rob Chapman, CEO of Firebrand Training, which was formerly known as The Training Camp.

The courses run monthly on a residential basis at one of a number of UK locations, with an average of 12 hours tuition per day, Firebrand says. The materials are developed by e-commerce training company EU-Council. The course costs £2650+VAT.

Firebrand runs other security courses, including offerings focused on secure programming and ethical hacking, as well as (ISC)2's CISSP and Checkpoint's CCSA and CCSE.
