The TAMU-CC business continuity planning tool, Islander Ready, coordinates our campus efforts to secure our mission – teaching, research, and public service against disruptive events.
Such events could be caused by nature (heavy rains, hurricane, fire, pandemic illness) or caused by humans (civil disturbance, cyber attack, and chemical accident). They could be big or small, as small as the failure of a hard drive. TAMU-CC will utilize business continuity planning to be as prepared as possible for such events. The “business” in that phrase refers to the core mission of our institution- teaching, research, and public service.
Continuity planning will help ensure that we can continue the university’s mission within a reasonable timeframe after disruption or a disaster.
