  Critical Environments

The focus of the Critical Environments discipline is on the design, build, operations, management, governance, and audit of data centers and other critical environments used to house computer systems, and associated components such as telecommunications and storage systems.

It is estimated that by 2020, more than seven billion people and businesses, and close to 35 billion devices, will be connected to the Internet. Those who design, build, operate, and manage data centers and other critical environments need to be able to manage risk, incorporate change, and be innovative in order to design strategies fit for the digital world.

ICOR’s critical environments series of courses are designed to meet these challenges.
