My Department’s IT backup arrangements are that frequently-changing data is backed-up nightly, infrequently-changing data is backed-up weekly, and both types are also stored offsite on encrypted tape media.

The information in respect of state bodies, within the scope of the Deputy’s question, is not held by my Department. Contact details for these bodies are set out in the attached document, should the Deputy wish to contact the aegis bodies directly.
