Storage Security - Do You Know Where Your Data Is?
As new regulatory and legal requirements surrounding data
“indiscretions” continue to emerge and the penalties become more
severe, many organizations are exploring storage security options like
encryption to better protect their data. Those who have ventured into
this space quickly realize that there is no "panacea" that will make
the problems go completely away. However, with careful planning and
judicious use of the right technologies, organizations can eliminate
many of their exposures. This session focuses on ways to protect data
by using security within the storage ecosystem as well as making it an
important element of a defense-in-depth strategy. Best practices along
with factors to consider are presented for protecting storage
management, data in-flight, and data at-rest within contemporary
