CMMC v2.11 Practices

PE.L2-3.10.6  

Reference: CMMC v2.11

Family: PE

Level Introduced: 2

Title: Alternative Work Sites

Practice:
Enforce safeguarding measures for CUI at alternate work sites.

Further Discussion:
Many people work from home or travel as part of their job. Define and implement safeguards to account for protection of information beyond the enterprise perimeter. Safeguards may include physical protections, such as locked file drawers, as well as electronic protections such as encryption, audit logging, and proper access controls.

Example
Many of your company’s project managers work remotely as they often travel to sponsor locations or even work from home. Because the projects on which they work require access to CUI, you must ensure the same level of protection is afforded as when they work in the office. You ensure that each laptop is deployed with patch management and anti-virus software protection [b]. Because data may be stored on the local hard drive, you have enabled full-disk encryption on their laptops [b]. When a remote staff member needs access to the internal network you require VPN connectivity that also disconnects the laptop from the remote network (i.e., prevents split tunneling) [b]. The VPN requires multifactor authentication to verify remote users are who they claim to be [b].

Potential Assessment Considerations
• Do all alternate sites where CUI data is stored or processed meet the same physical security requirements as the main site [b]?
• Does the alternate processing site provide information security measures equivalent to those of the primary site [b]?
