DTPC have ensured that the clients data and our support is safeguard by putting in place a key infrastructure. This will enable the business to be resilient against computer issues and get back up and running in a short a time as possible. The vast majority of the business support is carried out electonically and safe guarded by the following processes, where possible i.e. the hard copy information is supplied in A4/3 size these are scanned in and saved to the scheme folders to enable back ups to be undertaken.
All data is backed up every day overnight and is encrypted to ensure confidentiallity is maintained, data can be reinstated within an hour and no stored data is overwritten http://www.databax.co.uk
In addition to the off site backing up of data on site back ups are also carried out on a daily basis using a remote hard disc supplied by http://www.seagateactive.com
DTPC PC’s are safeguarded by a continuous UPS which is always on and acts as a battery that powers the computer. A continuous UPS charges itself on AC power from a wall socket, and in turn runs the computer and other hardware systems. This acts as a buffer so that no matter what happens to the AC power — be it surge, lag, or outage — the critical machinery receives a clean, reliable flow of juice.
If the PC system fails and cannot be repaired the company has a back up laptop which has all necessary programmes setup on and thus can have the backed up data downloaded and support continued.
We are a member of the FSB to ensure we have upto date information on running the business to reduce down time in trying to research all the business support needs ourselves thus maximising our ability to react and provide timely advice to clients http://www.fsb.org.uk
