RESILIA Foundation

3 days


RESILIA is a framework of best practice, developed by AXELOS, to build cyber resilience skills across an organization. Based on the Cyber Resilience Best Practices guide, it offers practical knowledge to enhance existing management strategies and help align cyber resilience with IT operations, security and incident management. Using the ITIL lifecycle it develops the skills and insight needed to detect, respond to and recover from cyber-attacks.

When a cyber-attack strikes it threatens the fundamentals of a good business - reputation, customer confidence and operational continuity. Knowing how to respond and recover effectively requires clarity and confidence through the cyber resilience of all of your people. That is because businesses don't detect and protect from a cyber-attack - people do. Equipping people to react to cyber threats is critical for keeping the value of your business, within your business. RESILIA ensures this by keeping your reputation intact, customers close and operations up and running.


This course is a 3 day Foundation course that leads to the Practitioner level, which is a further 2 days. The Practitioner Certifications are aimed at all professionals within IT Service Management, Information Security, Business Analysis, IT Project Management, Risk Manager, IT Development, IT and Security Architecture, Risk Management professionals and leadership roles such as CTO, CISO, CRO, Head of Risk, Heads of Compliance and Business Continuity and Heads of IT.

However, all core business functions, HR, Finance, Procurement, Operations and Marketing, will benefit from having cyber resilience expertise within the team, often including a local champion or mentor for all staff to refer to. RESILIA certifications are designed for all staff from leadership roles (HR Director, CFO, Operations Director) to management and operational teams.


You may think that Cyber Security is the responsibility of Information Security Personnel or Information Analysts, but the reality is that Cyber Security is the responsibility of everyone in the organization. This foundation course is applicable to any member of staff who has access to sensitive company information, or who interacts with customer information, or who accesses the company network or external networks. If you are working in Cyber Security then this is a particularly important course for you and can be the first step to also taking the Resilia Practitioner certification.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
