The General Services Administration (GSA), the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and others worked together to create the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) to secure cloud systems. FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. This approach uses a “do once, use many times” framework that saves cost, time, and staff required to conduct redundant agency security assessments. For more information, click here.
