"As Information Technology Officer, and Business Continuity Coordinator for Julius Baer Bank & Trust (Cayman), I found the information provided in the classroom to be instructional, invaluable and well presented.

"As our Agency's business practices have matured and the processes that support them become more dependent on IT technology, we were becoming unbalanced in the area of plan development. This class is a fresh review of best practices and methodology that lends itself to a better understanding of business continuity management, and its presentation provides a sure path in which a complete business continuity program is developed. The class format provided for a sharing of insights and ideas that I found valuable for continued professional growth in this industry. Many thanks."
