After a combined 7864 jumps and 3500 calories burned, a team of sponsored skippers from Datcom, Lincolnshire based IT and cyber security company raised over £2000 for the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance last week in a fundraising Skipathon.Against the backdrop of the gleaming ambucopter poised for take-off at LNAA Head Quarters in Lincoln, the team jumped rope - relay style, to raise much-needed funds for the charity.Earlier in the year Datcom made the LNAA their company ‘Charity of the Year,’ and this was the first in a programme of fundraiser events to be held throughout the year to help in the mission to save lives across the region.As a charity, the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance receives no direct Government funding and relies solely on public donations to fund their day-to-day operations. Yet, in order to maintain operations in attending some of the most serious and critical 999 calls in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, the charity must raise £7.4 million pounds this year.
Tanya Taylor, Corporate Partnership Manager, Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance commented:“We’d like to say a huge thank you to the Datcom team for their efforts and tremendous energy! This has been an incredibly busy time for our air ambulance crew, in fact we have now got a secondary operational ambucopter attending some of the most critical incidents occurring on the roads in our region. It is only through the help of local people donating and the support from businesses like Datcom, that we can maintain our high level of services and ensure our team is available to help where it is needed the most.”Datcom Sales Director and Event Organizer, Hannah L. Sang commented:“We have been overwhelmed by the support and generosity from our clients in supporting our fundraising efforts. We had set a target of raising £3500 throughout the year, which is the cost of a single LNAA mission - we have achieved nearly/half that in our first event!We have been really humbled by getting a glimpse behind the scenes of LNAA Head Quarters today. The highly specialist skills of the medics and phenomenal service they provide is really second-to-none, and in an emergency situation any one of us may need their help.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OKPAdy7sI0
Many businesses nowadays require users to access resources remotely. That could mean a remote-access VPN for users in the field, a website hosted on a server within the network, or a remote desktop solution for people working from home. All of these systems are a potential target for attackers. Upgrading your standard issue ISP router will greatly improve your security.
Datcom have been our IT partners for many years, providing reliable support for our network, backups and client PCs and laptops. Due to the nature of our business, a lot of our team are remote or home workers, so having someone on hand to get our people quickly back up and running if they have a problem is a real asset to our business.

In today's business society companies change their IT service provider if they are too expensive, not good enough or just not being provided with the quick efficient service they have been promised. I have found Datcom services prompt and good value, with good advice on making my business more cost-effective, which is why I have used them since 2007.
