The news story from The Register discusses a significant incident where SAP’s data center was impacted due to an SSD failure, leading to data loss and system outages. This incident underscores the critical importance of proper data storage and the risks associated with hardware failures. While the article doesn’t specifically mention data theft, it highlights the potential vulnerabilities and the catastrophic consequences of not having robust data protection and hardware maintenance protocols in place.

In the context of data security, this incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of hard drive destruction and secure data disposal.
