Storage Security Best Current Practices


The SNIA Technical Document Storage Security Best Current Practices (BCPs) provide broad guidance to organizations seeking to secure their individual storage systems as well as their storage ecosystems. By focusing on best practices rather than a more minimalist set of requirements, organizations have flexibility in how they implement this guidance – as specific technology areas or in a phased approach, and so on.

This vendor neutral guidance, formally endorsed by the SNIA membership as a SNIA Technical Document, has a broad scope, covering both storage systems and the entire storage ecosystems. Storage security BCPs have been grouped into core BCPs and technology-specific BCPs. The core BCPs are applied to all storage systems and ecosystems. The technology-specific BCPs are above and beyond the core BCPs and more than one of these BCPs may be applicable in a given environment.
