We work for all types of clients, but we have particular experience of the oil and gas, executive search, legal and financial sectors.
Oil and Gas
Oil and gas clients often need high-performance workstations and extensive storage to handle the seismic data generated by geological and geophysical surveys. They also need reliable inter-site communications, particularly email, with solid business continuity plans in case of incidents. This is particularly important for offshore facilities or operations in emerging nations.
We can help by optimising network links between sites to guarantee always-on communications. We can also develop robust systems and processes for business continuity, backup and disaster recovery, including the replication of valuable data to safe locations.
The Executive Search industry depends on confidentiality, and Data Protection is a key issue, so search agencies are frequently concerned that CVs, client details and specialist databases are stored securely. Many firms are expanding overseas, and their consultants are often out visiting clients or conducting interviews, so multi-site or remote working is also a priority.
To guarantee confidentiality, we can set up data encryption processes and control access to key data, including the management of removable storage. We can connect multiple sites and devices with a robust, reliable network that allows full access to corporate systems without compromising on security.
Legal firms need quick, reliable access to internal records such as precedents libraries, case management systems, time records and billing reports. They also need to ensure that records are retained for the required retention period. Many use verbal dictation, and need a way to capture and collate content produced in this way.
We can set up automated processes for searching, retrieving and editing key documents, so fee-earners can quickly find the information they need. To support the use of dictated material, we can create workflows to manage outsourced transcription and store transcribed material. We can also structure data retention systems so that data is safely stored for six years before being securely deleted.
All our work is carried out in accordance with the SRA codes of practice.
For financial firms, client confidentiality and data security are key issues. They need solid plans for business continuity, and increasingly make use of remote working, for example to support advisors visiting clients. Finally, they must always make sure everything they do is in line with FCA regulations.
We can help create systems and processes for effective document management, and control network access to keep confidential information secure. We can set up and manage remote working systems without compromising on security, and put systems in place to ensure rapid and effective data recovery if disaster strikes.
