Why did you decide to take the CBCI Certification Course?

I have been working in information security and IT areas for over 10 years and have passed several top certifications. Business continuity issues were touched upon in each certification. Having completed several projects to build a business continuity management system, I decided to get the most recognised certification in this area. I was recommended to take the CBCI exam, which I did. I plan to develop in this area.

What did you learn by taking the CBCI Certification Course?

First of all, preparing for the CBCI exam using GPG allowed me to structure my knowledge. BCI methodological manuals allow you to look at the problem of ensuring business continuity from different angles - a top manager, an IT specialist, a continuity specialist. In my organization, I built a continuity management system based on GPG using all 6 main domains.

What has been the effect of the CBCI Certification Course been on your career?

In Russia, CBCI certification is just beginning to gain market attention. I'm glad I was one of the first to receive it. Passing the exam unambiguously opens up new career opportunities and allows me to commend it to my colleagues starting in their BC career to perform on the market as a professionally qualified team.

How has the CBCI Certification Course helped you in your role?

After passing the CBCI certificate, colleagues began to contact me for advice in the field of business continuity. The certification has had a positive impact on my role in the organization.
