At Katrina's Edge: One Campus's Story
Sunday, January 1, 2006
Louisiana State University CIO Brian Voss shares his university's experiences in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. LSU (and IT at LSU) played a key role, providing a central point for relief and response functions and supporting recovery of IT operations for affected campuses. Katrina's devastation should alert CIOs throughout higher education of the need to think about disaster recovery and business continuity planning with a broader perspective, including how we might leverage growing cyberinfrastructure and collaborative partnerships.
