Edward: I've not seen exactly the case you describe. In the Liquid Motors case mentioned above, the FBI said it needed to take over the entire data center. The data center owner was the target of the investigation. FBI said the target's data were commingled with other data throughout the entire data center service. -Ben
Alan: You make an interesting comment. But the link to my information at is wrong. My address is not 3421 Granada. One of the problems with alternative sources of information is that they are less reliable. --Ben
Larry: Thank you for your comment. I do not believe that the tradeoff between data protection and record retention is well understood. I have seen very little discussion of it in the context of PCI or data security guidelines, such as the "right to be forgotten" coming out of EU. One reason I published this story is to help all of us learn to balance the need for destroying sensitive data, on the one hand, against the need to preserve records for legal and other purposes, on the other. --Ben
Jesse: The Summit agenda is NOT set in stone yet. We are still looking for speakers and topics. You might be a fit. I will contact you directly. Thanks --Ben
Thank you, Edward. I'm just starting to learn and think about crowdsource for investigations, such as e-discovery in lawsuits and in Freedom of Information Act requests. I see lots of potential, and I'd like to showcase that potential at the SANS Summit on e-records policy September 27-28. --Ben
Thank you for those thoughtful comments, Jesse. I emphasized email because storing things like RSS feeds or PDFs over the long haul can be a challenge. In contrast, it is institutionally easier for an organization to commit that it will keep the email of important people like executives for, say, 5 to 7 years.
