Security and Storage
System security and quality control/quality assurance are essential elements of our information management system designs. We customize the storage and security of your data systems according to your needs:
- Offsite storage
- Automatic backups
- Timely distribution
- Online access
- Use of Heritage’s secure ftp site
Once we determine your distribution and security needs, we employ a strict process to ensure your data is accessible by the approved users, at the right time, and in the correct location.
Heritage has been providing historical and information management services for a confidential client involved in one of the nation's largest Superfund sites. The work effort focused on collecting, organizing, analyzing, and presenting information that identified and quantified mining and mineral processing activities that caused the current environmental problems in Western Montana.
Documents collected were first duplicated in hard copy for the client. A few years later, microfilm was the media of choice for imaging the collection. Still later, document scanning and DVD backups were made available on request. Distribution via email became the method of choice. Now in our 18th year on the project, we store over 40 file cabinets or more than 350,000 pages of original paper and photographs for which our client pays rent for use of our space. At any time we can access the originals for a first generation copy or scan as needed.
