Data Erasure at Every CMMC Level

Oct 20, 2021 Solution Brief

Please note that as of November 4, 2021, the U.S. Department of Defense has revised the CMMC program while maintaining its original goals of enhanced cybersecurity standards for Defense Industrial Base (DIB) companies. Because changes are ongoing and the associated CMMC assessment guides are currently under revision, we invite you to contact us directly about the role of data erasure in sanitizing media used to store federal sensitive, unclassified information (See NIST SP 800-171, NIST SP 800-172, and NIST SP 800-88).  We also invite you to visit the DoD CMMC 2.0 website for the most current updates.

How Blancco Helps U.S. Defense Contractors Fulfill CMMC Media Sanitization Requirements 

Contractors for the United States Department of Defense handle a lot of government data, and a new certification framework is being rolled out to make sure that data is protected.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework confirms an organization’s ability to protect FCI (federal contract information) and CUI (classified uncontrolled information). Instead of the previous method of relying on organizations’ self-assessments, third-party assessors evaluate contractor competencies across five levels of cybersecurity maturity.

The good news is that Blancco’s globally certified data erasure solutions and audit-ready reports equip you to follow all CMMC media sanitization requirements across an incredibly wide set of data storage devices. This comprehensive approach provides operational efficiency, consolidated support and training, and centralized reporting to verify compliance.
