Abstract: 

With the increasing importance and emphasis on security in mind, the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) had developed and published (see /forums/ssif/programs/best_practices/) a set of storage security best current practices (BCPs). This vendor neutral guidance has a broad scope, covering both storage systems and entire storage ecosystems. Specific elements include, but are not limited to, storage management, system configurations, protocols, compliance, encryption, key management, and long-term archive. This session provides an introduction to the BCPs as well as information that that will help organizations exploit the BCPs in their own environments.
