About this talk

Now that self-encrypting drives are becoming widely available for client and enterprise storage, how do you deploy them? What are the critical steps to assessing when and how to use SEDs? What about industry best practices and standards? Storage industry expert Tom Coughlin of Coughlin Associates and Hussein Syed, Barnabas Health will address the realities of using SEDs today. SEDs, which automatically and transparently encrypt data constantly in the hard drive itself, meet U.S. and international standards for compliance and provide a safe harbor while protecting against data breaches typical to today's enterprise environment. The webinar will address seven steps for IT, legal and security staff to follow to deploy encryption. A quick review of self-encrypting drive capabilities will be provided with discussion of crypto-erase, as recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) checklist for encryption and SED's role will be reviewed along with case studies on SEDs in real enterprises with discussion of deployment challenges and resolving them.
