Security & Certifications
Blackboard has a longstanding and strong commitment to provide secure products and services to our clients.
The U.S. federal government has granted FedRAMP Low-Impact SaaS authorization to Blackboard for its award-winning learning management system, Blackboard Learn, on AWS GovCloud. Blackboard Learn SaaS is now eligible for use by all federal agencies that meet the requirements for Low Impact SaaS (Li-SaaS). In order to further our commitment to safety and security, we are continuing to pursue FedRAMP Moderate certification.
As of April 2017, Blackboard Learn is available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US), an isolated AWS region designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud. This marks a critical step forward in our journey to full Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) accreditation, further helping the our customers support their U.S. government compliance requirements.
Blackboard has achieved DIACAP (DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process) certification in 2011 and was recertified in 2014.
