National Hurricane Preparedness Week

To help promote the National Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 25-31, 2014), IT would like to encourage you to carefully review the Information Technology Hurricane Preparedness Guides. College of Charleston faculty, staff and students should read the recommendations provided and take the necessary steps to help ensure that you are prepared to continue operations during and after a disaster. The Hurricane season starts June 1, 2014 so be prepared!

Student Information Technology Hurricane Preparedness Guide

The guides outline the steps that IT takes for Disaster Recovery. IT refers to Disaster Recovery as the process and procedures that are related to preparing for recovery or continuation of technology infrastructure only. It’s important for departments to be familiar with their own business continuity plans when campus applications and/or systems are down. IT will help you formulate and implement your disaster recovery plans to the extent possible upon request.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Information Technology Helpdesk at (843) 953-3375 or by emailing
