Which operation must you undertake to avoid mishandling of tapes, CDs, DVDs, floppies, and printed material?
- Proper labeling is required to avoid mishandling of the information on storage media, such as tapes and floppy disks. Compact discs and floppy disks are used to store small data sets while backup tapes are used to store large numbers of data sets. Storage media containing confidential information must be appropriately marked and labeled to ensure appropriate classification. The storage media should also be stored in a protected area. Each media should be labeled with the following details:
Degaussing is not a media handling technique but a media sanitization technique. Degaussing is the process of reducing or eliminating an unwanted magnetic field of a storage media by applying strong magnetic forces. Degaussing devices generate powerful opposing magnetic fields that reduce the magnetic flux density of the storage media to zero. Degaussing is the most preferred method for erasing data from magnetic media, such as floppy disks and magnetic tapes.
- date of creation
- retention period
- volume name and version
- name of the person who created the backup
Zeroization is not a media handling technique but a media sanitization technique. Zeroization implies that a storage media is repeatedly overwritten with null values, such as multiple ones and zeros, for sanitization. Zeroization is generally used in a software development environment.
Data transfer to an offsite location should take place to create a backup copy of the media if there is a disaster at the primary site. Data transferred to an offsite location acts as a backup copy of the data. The storage media should be labeled appropriately to prevent mishandling.
