This edition of the Storage magazine eNewsletter contains an unusual case study that looks at how the Met Office disposed of a number of end-of-life tapes, using a specialised technology called KIT from South Wales firm Insurgo Media.

What happens to tapes - and the data contained on them - is a topic that is all too often overlooked in our industry, and in an age of increasing compliance and legislation coming at organisations from all angles, it is one that should be far higher on CIO’s agendas.

There needs to be absolute confidence that no matter how tapes are disposed of, it is done so in such a way that can guarantee 100% that all data is removed, with no remaining trace and zero chance of recovery - this is not as clear-cut as you might think, as this fascinating case study illustrates.
