The University has generated a new, robust digital continuity system for departmental plans indicating how to mitigate, respond, and recover from threats and hazards impacting their operations.

275 continuity plans on the platform allow essential units and services to return to normal operations despite the size, scope, or type of disaster/emergency.

The continuity plan may be activated for:

  • Natural disasters (e.g., fire, infectious disease outbreak, unexpected loss of an essential employee, earthquake).
  • Technological disasters (e.g., data loss, connectivity loss, equipment failure).
  • Human-caused disasters (e.g., theft, civil unrest, cyber-attack, bomb threat, terrorist attack).
