ISSA – Baltimore Chapter Infosec Meetup Event – Wednesday, 01-28: Data Decommissioning

The upcoming ISSA – Baltimore Chapter infosec meetup event on Wednesday, January 28th promises to be both interesting and controversial. An open panel discussion moderated by Sean Steele, the ISSA – Baltimore Chapter Website promises that the meetup will focus on the “best practices for establishing and verifying controls for data destruction, including magnetic degaussing, Triple Overwrite/DOD Standard 5220, physical shredding, and Secure Erase methods.” The meetup will also focus on operational considerations, open source tools that are currently available, COTS applications, and commercial services.

If you have an expertise in any of these areas, or would like to learn more about them, a panel discussion is the perfect place to do it. You can ask questions, share your knowledge, or sit back and learn from others in the field.
