Sounds simple enough

Try one of the multitude of rsync based scripts, you can even get some
very good incremental backups happening, and burning DVDs/ dumping to
tape/etc is simple enough top script as well.  Rsync by default works
over ssh so can be very secure.

The had part would be, how do these people want to retrieve the data?

If you are just handing them media once a day, then it's simple, but if
they want to retrieve it remotely as well, then you could be in for some
fun and games.
