NIST 800-88 Certificate of Destruction

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed Guidelines for Media Sanitization – NIST 800-88.  This document assists organizations in implementing a media sanitization program consistent with the security level of the information or data to be destroyed.

Conforming with NIST 800-88 Media Sanitization requires more than simply erasing or shredding hard drives. Proper reporting is required under NIST 800-88. The following document is only a portion of the guidelines set forth by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.  We have worked with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to destroy digital media for NASA in accordance with NIST 800-88.
