Screenpointe conducts data backups every 30 minutes on a continuous basis. The data is transferred to a separate backup server so the active data and backups are in physically different locations. In regards to disaster recovery, our servers are located in a state-of-the-art facility with a 24-7 physical presence and automated monitoring to minimize any disaster events.
We also have multiple database and application servers which client systems can be operated from, so in the case of a failure, we are able to bring client systems online from different servers which are already configured and waiting to be utilized.
Pursuant to the FCRA, we must maintain any reports that we generate for a minimum period of five years. Screenpointe maintains written or electronic copies of information received in conjunction with services rendered for a period of seven years in a secure facility which is electronically and physically monitored 24/7/365. Information is subsequently destroyed by means of erasing and destroying electronic files, and pulverizing and shredding written or hard copy materials.
