The Associate Cyber Resilience Professional (ACRP) is an exciting new credential for those who are new to business continuity and cybersecurity and wish to establish themselves as up-and-comers in cyber resilience. A highly sought after skill set, cyber resilience marries cybersecurity and business continuity to create an environment in which both disciplines work together to maximize effectiveness and protect the organization from cyber threats. The ACRP certification is designed for those who have not yet acquired a great deal of experience in either field. Starting on your career path in cyber resilience via the ACRP certification will provide you with the skills you need to advance both your skills and your career. This is not a technical cybersecurity certification. It is intended for resilience professionals who require a working knowledge of cybersecurity to manage a holistic resilience program. This designation can be jointly held with other DRI certifications.
The Certification Process
The ACRP certification is for individuals with less than two (2) years of cyber resilience, business continuity, and/or cybersecurity experience. Applicants must complete a Cyber Resilience for the Business Continuity Professional course and have successfully passed the Cyber Resilience Examination.
