FedRAMP Compliance | The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program | NIST SP 800-53 | Overview

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program - FedRAMP - is the culmination of cybersecurity and cloud computing initiatives from the likes of GSA, NIST, DHS, DOD, NSA, OMB, along with numerous private sector entities. Moreover, the assessment process itself requires Cloud Service Providers wishing to provide cloud based services for Federal agencies to undertake the following:

  • Use the baseline controls and accompanying FedRAMP requirements as designed.
  • Directly apply or work with a sponsoring agency to submit an offering for FedRAMP authorization.
  • Hire a Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) to perform an independent system assessment.
  • Create and submit authorization packages as required for FedRAMP.
  • Provide continuous monitoring reports and updates to FedRAMP.
