Abstract: 

Many organizations face the challenge of implementing protection and data security measures necessary to comply with a wide range of regulatory, statutory, and other legal requirements. Because storage systems (actually the data they contain) play an important part in many of these issues, storage managers and administrators may be asked to assist in supporting a variety of legal actions as well as help their organizations guard against data transgressions having legal consequences. Thus, they need to be capable of taking abstract regulatory, statutory and other legal requirements and translating them into implementable solutions. In addition, they must be able to partner with the legal community to ensure these solutions address the organization’s compliance requirements and that the support is timely and responsive. This session describes the legal issues storage security professionals are likely to encounter as part of their role as the focal point for securing storage systems. It also highlights relevant emerging trends from the legal community.
