Storage Security Policy
June 12, 2006
Safely retaining and securing data is an important aspect of an effective security strategy. Business demands, increased user requirements and even compliance concerns (i.e., Sarbanes-Oxley) have created a need for a comprehensive Storage Security Policy.
This TechRepublic Premium policy's purpose is to preserve the organization's critical data from damage, disaster, and misuse as well as to ensure fulfillment of compliance requirements, ensure privacy, optimize storage space, reduce the cost of data retention, and ensure that outdated records are properly destroyed. It includes a policy you can customize to meet your needs as well as a risk assessment spreadsheet you can use to judge just how much your organization is at risk by not having this policy in place.
