Dear Niamh,

Thank you for your FOI request below. We received a similar request for the College of North West London. CWC and CNWL merged to form United Colleges Group in 2017.
The following response is for the Group (both colleges).

Backup, DR and BC:
a. What device/system do you use for your daily backups (e.g tape or disk) - online & disk
b. What backup software do you use? - Acronis & Veeam
c. How much data do you backup, in TB? - c. 40TB / day
d. Do you use a third party to provide a Business Continuity service (e.g. office workplace recovery or infrastructure ship-to-site solutions)? - no
f. Do you already backup into the cloud? - Yes
g. Do you have a documented disaster recovery & business continuity plan in place? - yes

The security questions are exempt under S36 - prejudice to the effective conduct of public affairs, as disclosure may cause vulnerabilities to our security.

Thank you
Zoë
