Data centres are at the core of many organizations. Downtime, of applications or the data centre itself, could lead to major direct and indirect losses to the business. This has led many organizations to build resilience at various levels such as at the data centre infrastructure and at the ICT layer. Fact is though that most companies are either over- or under spending due to the fact that many organizations have not been able to answer basic questions such as ‘what is the cost of downtime’ being it per application and/or the data centre itself.
Certification exam papers can be taken in paper based format at the end of the last day of the course, or online via an authorized training partner, depending on the country in which the course is delivered. The exam is a one hour, 40 questions, multiple choice and closed book exam. The attendee need to have 27 out of 40 questions correct in order to pass the exam. Results of the exam will be communicated to the attendee within four weeks following the examination.
Attendees who successfully pass the exam will receive the official ‘Certified Data Centre Risk Professional’ certificate. Certification is valid for a three years period after which the student needs to re-certify. More information on re-certification and verification of the current status of certification can be found on the EPI corporate website, http://www.epi-ap.com.
Without knowing the cost of downtime it would be impossible to determine what level of investment is justified to mitigate the risks of downtime. This has led to the fact that many data centres have been built at potentially a Tier-4 level as per the ANSI/TIA-942, whereas from a business perspective a Tier-3 level would have been enough.
Risk management is the process to identify vulnerabilities and associated threats, to be followed by estimating the level of risk that they may face and how they might impact the organization if these risks were to emerge. Based on international standards (ISO/IEC27001:2005) and guidelines (ISO/IEC 27005:2011, NIST 800-30, ISO/IEC 31000/31010), CDRP (Certified Data Centre Risk Professional) is a course designed to expose attendants to the overall risk management process.
Focus is on both the data centre infrastructure and the physical data centre facility and equipment; the attendant will learn how to identify and quantify risk in their organization, creating the ability to reduce the risk to a level acceptable for the organization to allow them to make sound investment decisions based on facts rather than emotions. CDRP is a must for every organization that wants to manage their risk without over spending.
