TechLink Community: Cloud & Hybrid Backup - Phoenix Software / Bridge Fibre new Finished 14:15 - 16:15 UIS Online Courses - instructor-led

Since cloud-based services do not always guarantee long-term retention for all data, and like all systems are not immune to outages and downtime, backup is still a requirement to reduce risks of data loss. This session will review backing-up one cloud to a different cloud system, and/or to a local storage system, for disaster recovery or business continuity.

As part of the UIS Wellbeing initiative, we are very pleased to invite Hisham Ziauddeen a Clinical Senior Research Associate in the Department of Psychiatry and the University’s Wellbeing and Disability Champion to deliver a talk on 'Optimising Brain Functioning'. He is a consultant psychiatrist working in early intervention in psychosis.

He will talk about how we model our minds and how we manage the cost of mental functioning. He will particularly discuss the impact of work and other stress and the phenomenon of burnout. These are complex problems that have got even more complex with COVID-19 and they don’t have simple solutions but there are some ways we can ease them.

The 4 March is University Mental Health Day which aims to bring together the university community to make mental health a university-wide priority and create ongoing year round change to the future of our mental health. Now more than ever it's important to get the nation talking about our mental health.

Both staff and students are welcome to join the live event.
