Re: Re Director of Security
"No, I do need access to that data"
I'm sorry, but that's not always the case. This is a flaw of some IT professional's believing they're God.
Unless encrypted volumes or hiding anything away from the eyes of IT is banned, then you do not need access to it. Your problem isn't beyond providing the disk space and backing it up.
If an investigator wants the data, you'd then refer them on to who's locked it.
The IT department is not God.
