This White Paper was written by Mike Cheslock in early 2017, and is an interesting perspective on the real-world risks of data wiping operations.  Having identified and resolved numerous examples of failures in data wiping operations, Mike shares his thoughts on the stark contrast of the areas of data wiping that are often perceived as important, and those that deserve the most attention.
