CMMC 1.0 Practice RE.2.137 Requirement:

Regularly perform and test data back-ups.

CMMC 1.0 RE.2.137 Requirement Explanation:

Backups can be used to recover your system in the event of a hardware failure, software failure, or malware infection. For this to be effective you need to regularly backup your systems and test them.

Example CMMC 1.0 RE.2.137 Implementation:

Run scheduled backups of your systems. An example is to backup backup your corporate file server weekly. Regularly test these backups to verify that they work. Prioritize backing up systems containing “Controlled Unclassified Information” (CUI) and “Federal Contract Information” (FCI).

CMMC 1.0 RE.2.137 Scenario(s):

- Scenario 1:

Alice wants to ensure that she can recover her company's servers in the event they are infected with malware. She sets up a backup server and configures the other servers to be backed up weekly to the backup server. Bi-annually, Alice tests a few of the backups to verify that they work.
