    View this talk as Power Point
    Most administrators and users are blissfully unaware of how difficult
    it is to expunge data from computer systems and storage media.
    Advances in storage technology, networks, file system software,
    operating system advances and increasing mobility of data have all
    conspired to make getting rid of data very difficult. Of course it
    doesn't help that almost all "secure" data deletion products do not
    work as advertised, or that encryption and other containment products
    also fail to work as advertised.
    The updated one is even less cheerful (but you'll have to wait till
    next year to see it =).
