Q

A seven-point security checklist for CIOs

What type of checklist or questions should CIOs ask their storage folks to ensure that the right protections are in place?
1. Is the IP network secure?
2. Is the datacenter secure?
3. Do we trust our employees?
4. Do we use encryption when needed?
5. Are we using iSCSI? Have we looked into iSCSI security methods?
6. Do we replicate data or do we have access to data via remote links?
7. Can anyone dial-in to our SAN?
