ICTO conducts an annual drill during summer recess every year. The purpose of conducting annual drill is to ensure the contingency plans are workable for maintaining the continuous operation of critical computing systems and campus network in the event of an emergency.

Annual drill objectives include:

  • To strengthen coordination with various units with early warning, communication and emergency response mechanism.
  • To ensure mission-critical systems are maintained and eliminate downtime of services.
  • To check and ensure existing contingency plans are effective.
  • To follow up findings and adopt continuous improvements.

ICTO will share the schedule of the drill on E-bulletin board soon. During the drill, some of the computing services will be interrupted or suspended for a very short period of time. We apologize for any inconvenience caused during the annual drill due to system testing.
