You Don't Want Records Broken


Kevin Bell, principal of North-East based DataSafe, has been elected president of PRISM International for 2006. PRISM International, which has its HQ in North Carolina, USA is the worldwide trade organisation for professional records and information services management.

As the first non-American president in Prism International's 26-year history, Kevin said: "I am delighted to represent the worldwide organisation and feel this recognises both the success and ability of DataSafe, all underpinned with a state of the art purpose built records management facility."

Since Kevin established the company in the early 1990s it has grown to become a UK market leader in information management providing secure storage of data with fast accurate retrieval and full audit tracking of files and magnetic media.

The demands of legislation are ever increasing and business owners and directors are under increasing pressure to protect and securely manage how their data is both stored and retrieved.

Sarbanes-Oxley (www.sarbanes-oxley.com) highlights a number of data issues and responsibilities businesses and executives are facing.

Sarbanes-Oxley legislation requires direct accountability of CEOs (Managing Directors) and CFOs (Financial Directors) to their financial statements and related documentation and reforms auditing standards for accounting companies in order to prove financial testing and methods for an extended period of time.

DataSafe has one single objective ( to provide a professional and trusted solution to offsite data storage.

Statistics show that 99% of companies do not carry out daily backups. Of those that do, 66% are incomplete and 50% fail. What's more, statistics show that on average 20mb of data takes 30 hours to build and has a business value of pounds 50,000.

More than half (60%) of companies that lose their data shut down within six months of a disaster. Given the facts, companies really only have one alternative and that is to secure their data.
