When the time comes to retire a hard drive or solid-state drive, it’s important to eliminate the data so that it does not create unnecessary risk for an organization. When the DoD 5220.22-M was created, many organizations latched onto it as a means to erase the data on their storage devices. 

If that DoD 3 or 7 pass was so effective, why does the United States Department of Defense no longer reference the DoD 5220.22-M? 

You will learn the following: 

  • • Why the DoD 5220.22-M cannot be trusted to remove data from data storage devices
  • • Why the DoD 5220.22-M was replaced by the NIST 800.88 
  • • What aspects of the NIST 800.88 make it a superior choice when faced with security and compliance requirements
