ND Department of Emergency Services is sponsoring "E0553: Resilient Accord Cyber Security Planning Workshop" on July 19, 2018 at the Quality Inn, 1030 E Interstate Ave., Bismarck, ND. Class will begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude at 5:00 p.m.

This course is based on the guidance to the Federal Executive Branch departments and agencies for developing Continuity of Operations (COOP) Plans and Programs. The purpose of the Resilient Accord Workshop is to increase Federal department and agency, state, local, territorial, and tribal jurisdictional continuity of operations awareness and discuss how to execute continuity operations resulting from a cyber security event.

Selection Criteria: Participation is open to Federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal government employees responsible for managing a Continuity of Operations Program. Selected candidates will be notified of acceptance to the class about 4 weeks prior to the scheduled class date.

Course Objectives:
  • Define the importance of an increased organizational awareness of incorporating cyber security into continuity planning.
  • Discuss how critical essential functions will continue through a cyber-security emergency and the planning required to perform those functions.
  • Review the essential elements of a viable continuity capability.
  • Identify solutions or alternative actions to challenges, gaps, or vulnerabilities in organizational continuity plans and procedures.
