IET Hosts Business Continuity Planning Workshop

Since early December 2005, selected campus units have been participating in the Business Continuity Planning Workshop, a program that focuses on post-emergency business recovery. Conducted by the Disaster Survival Planning Network (DSPN), the workshop specifically targets campus units responsible for HIPAA electronic personal health information and those handling sensitive and/or critical university electronic information. Over the course of the training???15 hours for each of the 10 participants, including substantial one-to-one time with the consultant???workshop participants develop business recovery plans specific to their unit. Following review, the final plans are tested during a simulated desktop drill. All participants are expected to exit training with a usable recovery plan. Training ends February 2, 2006.
