What Higher Education Can Learn From IT Business Continuity Planning

This discussion will examine how IT continuity activities can both inform and adapt to institutional strategies and needs during COVID-19, or any crisis.
Abstract: Contingency planning is key to dealing with the ongoing change and interruptions institutions will need to manage during the COVID-19 pandemic. But many universities do not have adequate contingency plans or lack the ability to quickly adapt their plans to uncertain circumstances. IT has been creating and implementing business continuity plans for years, and IT leaders are some of the few people that see across the entire organization. This discussion will examine how IT continuity activities can both inform and adapt to institutional strategies and needs during a crisis.
