Master a practical approach to cyber resilience on this accelerated Cyber Resilience: Foundation & Practitioner (RESILIA) course. This 3 day course covers both the Foundation and Practitioner programs and includes both exams.

RESILIA is designed to help commercial and government organisations prevent, detect and recover from cyber-attacks. Designed by AXELOS, RESILIA aims to build effective best-practice cyber security and incorporate it into existing management systems.

Build cyber resilience in your business

With RESILIA, you'll get a methodology for implementing cyber resilience in your organisation. On this three day course, you’ll learn a practical approach to IT security that reflects the need to detect and recover from incidents rather than relying on prevention alone.

You’ll learn cyber security best practices, including:

  • Common language across IT and non-IT teams
  • Enhanced collaboration
  • Control, reporting and good governance
  • A framework to use ITIL within IT security

Plus, learn how to use and implement the ITIL framework alongside RESILIA - providing a proven approach to IT service management and security in your business.

"The 5 days MSP training with the foundation, practitioner and advanced practitioner examinations is a demanding but great learning experience. The Firebrand trainer knows to keep a perfect balance between the theory, real life examples and experiences as well as preparation tips for the certification exams, which ensures a high certification rate (and thus a great return on the investment)"
G.H. . (3/7/2017 (Monday) to 7/7/2017 (Friday))

"The training is very intense but also very interesting. Preparation is needed but the trainer was very competent and knowledgeable, truly helping candidates to reach the required level of knowledge and comprehension. The trainers hands on experience also helps a lot as he gives real life illustrations of MSP concepts."
François D., Capgemini. (3/7/2017 (Monday) to 7/7/2017 (Friday))

"Overall good experience. This is truly fast track learning, so be prepared to do an extra effort. Ensure you have completed pre-study (if required) before you attend, or it will be difficult to keep up. Enjoy!"
Kim Dyrby Hansen. (19/6/2017 (Monday) to 23/6/2017 (Friday))

"PRINCE2 in just three days. At first I was very sceptic but the intensive and information packed training proved me wrong! I'll recommend this course to anyone who wants to get certified in the shortest time possible. Why spend two weeks if three days will suffice?"
Chris Rauws, Utrecht University. (25/11/2013 (Monday) to 27/11/2013 (Wednesday))

"I attended the Prince2 practitioners training at Firebrand. The pre-exam guide was concise and very valuable learning aid. The staff was friendly, the teacher experienced+insightful and the participants stimulated learning. A good experience overall."
