UIT Annual Health Care Tabletop Exercise

The objective of the annual exercise is to verify disaster recovery objectives and gain greater understanding of DR capabilities in the cloud of key UIT enterprise services. The services in scope of this active exercise maintain production infrastructure on premises at the historical campus. Restrictions are put in place that force a predetermined group of users to the DR instances. The intent of this exercise is to test our ability to sustain critical services and business functions in the event that historical campus infrastructure was inaccessible or inoperable.

The Key Performance Indicator, RTO (Recovery Time Objective), is validated prior to the event and measured against results. This transparency allows service owners and UIT Leadership to understand the capabilities of these systems.

The goal for each annual event is to determine steps on a path to increased system resiliency, clarify and document system DR business requirements, and create alignment between recovery capabilities and expectations.
