Changes in Data Storage & Destruction

The modern storage environment has changed dramatically over the last decade and is rapidly evolving. Data may pass through multiple organizations, systems, and storage media in its lifetime. The ubiquitous nature of data propagation is only increasing as the Internet and data storage systems move toward a distributed cloud-based architecture.

As a result, more parties than ever are responsible for effectively sanitizing media and the potential is substantial for sensitive data to be collected and retained on the media. This responsibility is not limited to those organizations that are the originators or final resting places of sensitive data, but also intermediaries who transiently store or process the information along the way. The efficient and effective management of information from inception through disposition is the responsibility of all those who have handled the data.

Organizations may choose to dispose of media by charitable donation, internal or external transfer, or by recycling it in accordance with applicable laws and regulations if the media is obsolete or no longer usable. Even internal transfers require increased scrutiny, as legal and ethical obligations make it more important than ever to protect data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII). No matter the final intended destination of the media, it is important that the organization ensure no easily constructible residual representation of the data is stored on the media after it has been deemed obsolete or idle.
