This 14-video course explores effective contingency planning and incidence response while preparing learners for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam. First, examine core elements of business continuity planning, data backup and restore, redundancy, how to use RAID (redundant array of independent disks), and incident response. This course then describes how to assess risk, the likelihood of events occurring against valued assets, and how to conduct a BIA (business impact analysis). Learners will explore a BCP (business continuity plan), assess assets, IT systems, data, and possible threats against those valued assets. This course continues by discussing alternate disaster recovery site types, including cold sites, warm sites, and hot sites. You will learn to use Windows Server 2016 to configure backup of data, restore data from a virtual machine, and understand the importance of backing up configurations of servers. You will learn to configure software RAID level 1 and RAID level 5 on a Windows host. Finally, learners will examine incident response lifecycles, and observe how to prepare the IRP (incident response plan).
