Pandemic Planning


The purpose of pandemic planning is to ensure that should some event render a large part of the computing staff unable to perform their normal roles, the remaining members of the computing staff have sufficient knowledge to keep critical services running and therefore allow Informatics staff and students to continue working, whether in the School premises or remotely.
