DRI International and Bowhead to Provide Risk Management Training and Certification

Partnership Combines Risk Management Training Experts With the Authority on Business Continuity Management

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Disaster Recovery Institute (DRI) International and Bowhead Systems Management, LLC (BSM, commonly known as Bowhead) have teamed up to provide a risk management course and professional certification for business continuity professionals.

Bowhead, well known for its Risk Management Services and Training, has partnered with DRI, the world leader in business continuity certification and training, to provide a course and credential to support business continuity professionals with a particular interest in, or responsibility for, risk management.

"It was a natural fit to combine Bowhead's risk management expertise with our business continuity experience and acumen," says DRI International President Al Berman. "As these disciplines converge within organizations, it is important for practitioners to expand their skill sets accordingly. So, this course and the certifications are exciting and necessary."

"Bowhead has been providing risk management services and training with existing and new customers supporting business continuity services," says Gerrie L'Heureux, President and CEO of UIC Technical Services (the parent company of Bowhead) "DRI has been active in risk management education, as the discipline is already part of DRI's Professional Practices, the most widely-used business continuity standard in the world. Bringing our combined experience and expertise to bear is a real step forward."

The first course is planned for late August in Washington, D.C.
