Data and Data Backup go hand in hand, if you have one, you need the other. Issues like Crypto-Locker/Ransomware, viruses, accidental deletion, corrupted data or hardware failures are just a few reasons your agency could lose its data.
Law Safe from CJIS Solutions protects your data by conducting file version backups on a schedule you decide. You can run your backups however you’d like and as many times a day as you’d like. If a Crypto-Virus hits your agency on a Wednesday, and you don’t realize it until Friday, just restore the prior backup that was clean and you’re back in business. Because you can have retention policies for as long as you like, you’ll always have access to your data so long as you’re with us.
Unknown threats are issues you didn’t realize happened until it’s too late. For example, an officer who is subject to an Internal Affairs Investigation and changed reports. Someone accidentally deleted a file and didn’t realize it until it was gone. Or maybe a hard drive was going bad that you didn’t realize. Natural disasters, broken water pipes, failed hardware, the list goes on… Whatever the issue, Law Safe protects you from all of them and lets you restore your files as fast as you can download them so you’re back in service with minimal downtime.
The #1 way to protect your agency’s data is OFF-SITE DATA BACKUP. Data backup doesn’t do an agency much good if there is an on-site loss. Broken water pipes, natural/manmade disasters, hardware failures are all reasons why data backup should always be sent to an off-site, remote location. Law Safe gives you the option of doing either or both so you can choose what’s best for your agency.
Digital evidence is key in nearly all investigations these days. Should your agency be a victim to a Crypto-Locker/Ransomware virus, you could wind up losing a suppression hearing in court. Once our files are encrypted with a virus, you can no longer fully attest to their integrity in court thus leaving your agency highly susceptible to suppression.
However, a fresh, restored copy of the data from the Law Safe off-site cloud can help protect you, your officers, and case management from that risk.
