In its latest Compliance Report for Cybersecurity Ventures, Sera-Brynn shared how FedRAMP came into being, who should care, and why being FedRAMP-authorized is important for companies.

“The U.S. government strives to use a mix of commercial cloud technologies, private government clouds, and regional state and local government clouds. FedRAMP, or the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, certifies both public and private sector cloud service providers (CSP). It is rigorous. The assessment must be done by an authorized assessor. The process to become that authorized assessor is also rigorous. So, if you want to get in the ring and become an authorized CSP or assessor, be prepared: it may not be a slugfest, but it’s challenging.”
