Data Management

Since its first tutorials on backup and restore best practices, SNIA has long undertaken work on data protection, capacity optimization, and long-term data retention, including the Linear Tape File System (LTFS) and the Self-contained Information Retention Format (SIRF) standards. A recent addition is a whitepaper Storage Security: Data Protection that provides an overview of data protection, data management and the associated guidance for ISO/IEC 27040:2015. This standard provides detailed technical guidance on controls and methods for data protection within storage systems. It covers topics such as data classification, retention and preservation, data authenticity, and data disposition.
