This is a super-practical multi-faculty program filled with hand-on simulation exercises, at the start of European summer 2023.

Classroom course in Delft (the Netherlands) with remote participation as fall-back option only in case a delegate needs to miss a session.

Learn from corporate and academic (incl international) guest speakers, how to protect an organisation against flood, cyber, supply chain, pandemic, chemical and other risks, and achieve better Business Continuity and Crisis Management.

This annual Summer Course is always refreshed with the latest best practice and case studies. It’s the perfect way to familiarise yourself with real-life business risks, and how to implement controls to reduce their impact and likelihood.

Week 1 of this special program features the popular world standards on Risk Management (incl. ISO 31000) and Business Continuity (incl. ISO 22301), plus a disaster 'drill' game and Risk Appetite determination exercise, which enhance your scenario planning skills.

Week 2 covers Information Security Management (incl. ISO 27001) and Crisis Management (incl. ISO 22361) plus data breach case studies and a Cyber Attack simulation game.

The ISO exams are governed by the world wide established Professional Evaluation and Certification Board (PECB), providing you with the latest international credentials after passing the exam and getting global certification.

Further details about the exams
Preparation time/effort depends very much on your prior knowledge. For this reason, we provide the exam preparation materials (upon exam payment) as self-study kit, so that all candidates have the same theoretical level of knowledge when each module begins.

For Foundation we would indicate that reading through the materials takes about 6 hours, and for Lead about 12 hours.

Any computer-based exam must be scheduled by the participant via the PECB, e.g. a few days/weeks after the course. If you have barely had time to go through the materials before the course, you may want to leave it a little longer after the course before scheduling your exam(s) so you can go through the materials a bit more before taking the exam. You can choose the date/time of the exam yourself.

A Windows laptop with application installation permissions is required to complete the exam.

The program contains practical topics and guest speakers. The classroom course does not cover all ISO content as theory classes. Self-study activities are required before and after the course, and all exams will be offered online at your own location and suitable time & date post-program.

Foundation is not required before Lead exams. Foundation includes lifetime free recertification. Lead requires professional experience and includes 1 year certification (then US$100 p/y directly payable to the PECB institute).

Changing Foundation to Lead level in the Corporate 2-wk package is €300 per exam extra. For those already holding PECB Foundation but want to take Lead of the same standard, the fee is only €890 per Lead exam.

For any of the Foundation exams, native English speakers get 1 hour (non-native English get an extra 10 minutes). For any of the Lead exams, native English speakers get max 3 hours (non native English get 30 minutes extra).

Incidentally, if you do not pass the first time, 1 free 're-sit' is offered by PECB within 12 months.
