Abstract: 

The changing regulatory, statutory, and legal requirements for data security and privacy are imposing new standards of care on storage owners, managers, and administrators. Addressing these requirements in storage implementations can be challenging and necessitate the use of technologies and approaches that are unfamiliar to storage practitioners. The situation can be further complicated when cloud computing, big data, IoT, etc. needs must also be addressed. Understanding some of the current trends and best practices can go a long way in meeting an organization’s obligations while protecting it from data breaches or other liabilities.

This session explores some of the more pressing requirements and issues that are likely to confront storage practitioners. Many of the applicable solutions and approaches will be touched on and will be addressed in other sessions during the SNIA Data Storage Security Summit.
