Depending on the event you may _not_ be allowed back into the building to
open the safe!

Would your goose be cooked if that were the case?

Cheers, Frank.

backup storage


In looking over the policies of a contract I’ve been put on,
the critical
stress has been put on data security and retention.  They
currently use
offsite storage by swapping tapes between their two buildings
which are only
15km (9 miles) apart.

Is that enough?
How is that any safer than a good fireproof vault?
