Disaster Recovery Plan
Decision Making Manager
It is important to establish a decision-making manager before we start the disaster recovery plan. This person will be in charge of the disaster recovery operation. For SIHE the person in charge of this will be the security manager at the institute (Mr Hue Williams contact : 01792 455695). He will make sure that all the proceedings of the disaster plan will be carried when needed. Also another manager will also be indicated this person will be the security manager who is situated in Townhill campus. If for any reason the first security manager is unavailable this person will take his or her place. (Mr Greg Adams contact : 01792 477895 ext 665)
