The Schools Financial Value Standards (SFVS) was updated in 2015. Section 2 of Point 25 of the SFVS states that all Local Authority maintained schools must back up their data off-site daily to protect the school’s important IT systems. RBUSS ensures compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation, ICO and SFVS guidance by guaranteeing that critical data is securely and automatically backed up offsite daily.
Redstor supports thousands of schools, academies, further education and higher education institutions either directly or via an extensive network of local government and private-sector, education service providers.
