The Internet Is Down, Where Did the Cloud Go?

Wednesday, October 16 | 4:00PM–4:45PM CT | Board 111, Poster Area, Halls F1, F2, Level 3
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
We'll explore approaches to maintaining access to critical services (e.g., LMS, file storage, ERP, telecom, etc.) that often require users access both their campus network for authentication and the cloud-based service provider that hosts the service (e.g., AWS for Canvas) during a campus internet outage.

Outcomes: Understand how a campus internet outage can affect off-campus student access to cloud-based services * Identify options to mitigate the impact of campus internet outages * Leverage tabletop exercises as a way to prepare for infrequent but impactful events
