IT Guidelines & Best Practices for Hurricane/Storm Preparedness

Best practices - Follow at all times

  1. Store your important files on SAMMY (Faculty and Staff) or TIMMY (Students). These are secure servers that are backed up nightly.
  2. For less critical data, backup your files onto a CD, DVD, flash drive or other device. This backup should not be stored with your primary machine but an alternate, safe (fireproof/ waterproof) location in the event your office suffers extensive damage.
  3. Your computer should be plugged into a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) and not just a surge protector. These devices contain a battery that will provide you power for a short period of time and should be used at all times.
