One of the questions I get asked constantly is about the safety of placing your data into particular environments, so I was quite pleased when I noticed that we’d released the Data Classification Toolkit for Windows Server 2008 R2 which helps you to do one of the basic tasks you’ll have to undertake.  Understanding your data.  I make no bones about it I think this is one of the key skills for IT Professionals going forward and it’s one of the key ways that you can help your business by providing intelligence to them to help the business make decisions.  The pack has the usual US take on it but that’s no bad thing in this case.

I shouldn’t have to say that using the tool doesn’t equate to proper advice from auditors, accountants or attorneys but I just have.
