Forwarded from: Kurt Seifried <listuserat_private> - Kurt Seifried [ Secure Data Deletion ] 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. http://www.hivercon.com/hc02/talk-seifried.htm The updated one is even less cheerful (but you'll have to wait till next year to see it =).
