October 2017 Education Session

Presented by Vancouver Security SIG, (ISC)² Vancouver Chapter, and ISSA Vancouver Chapter

Friday October 13th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)

Featured Presentation Topic: Pitfalls of Data Destruction and Sanitation

Speaker: James Martens (Account Manager, Blancco)

 

Abstract:

By 2020, The International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts the digital information present in the world to jump from 4.4 zettabytes (ZB) to 44 ZB. The emergence of Big Data and persistence of Cloud based storage/services being major contributors. This data is not a problem to store; it is, however, a massive problem to manage and erase. From device to data centre we will explore how to truly sanitize data (and prove it). We will start with simple magnetic hard drives and advance to satisfying EUGDPR’s demands of “the Right to be Erased/Forgotten” at a database and file level. With each technology we will explore common misconceptions of sanitation methods, how to avoid them, and how to truly sanitize the data.

Biography:

James is an Account Manager with Blancco Technology Group. He specializes in sanitizing data from device to data centre. Working with clients from small manufacturing plants to global IT asset disposal (ITAD) companies, James has spent 3 years living and breathing data destruction.
