Data protection contains much more than just adopting basic backup and recovery techniques, extending to issues related to data corruption, retention and data loss, data accessibility and availability, data confidentiality and sanitization, and compliance. In a nut-shell, this workshop shall cover factors to consider for data protection at the storage level and offers detailed best practices to:
  • Safeguarding of physical and logical data following SNIA best practices
  • Restore critical data in the event of a disaster
  • Determine appropriate backup retention periods using DLM and ILM
  • Classify and archive sensitive data according to regulatory and policy requirements 
  • Ensure securing data to meet appropriate compliance regulations
This is a one day lecture based face-to-face instructor led workshop that is specially designed to develop human resources in the field of business resilience and data data protection.
