All of the security certs give disaster planning and recovery, as well as business continuity and risk management issues, pretty decent coverage. The emphasis in most programs -- outside SANS and SCP (which is too small to really count) -- is rather more theoretical than practical. On the other hand, the Disaster Recovery Institute International ( offers a whole collection of certs directly aimed at this topic. Other certs that cover these topics include the Veritas VCPP, which is still pending, as do Learning Tree's IT Management Certified Professional program and its Exchange 2000 Certified Professional program as well.
