Volunteers in IT:
- How do we recruit volunteers?
- Volunteer Fairs
- Be clear about requirements
- Background checks
- This is a production environment, not a training ground
- As leaders, we need to define the scope way ahead of time
- Give your volunteers a tour, show the blinkenlights
- Good opportunity for people out of work to keep skills sharp, feel valued
- Weekend Announcements
- Backups are for the weak of faith — bryson
- What needs to be backed up, how often – not an IT decision, but a business decision
- Control/security of offsite data
- What’s the most important to leadership in case of a disaster?
