FedRAMP for Cloud Computing

Kratos SecureInfo Cybersecurity Services
3 Day Course

 Every federal department/agency must use the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) when conducting risk assessments, security authorizations and granting ATOs for all use of cloud computing services.

This FedRAMP for Low/Moderate Cloud Computing Environments 3-day course introduces the attendees to the program’s innovative policy approach to developing trusted relationships between the government departments/agencies, third party assessment organizations (3PAOs) and cloud service providers (CSPs). The roles and responsibilities of all key FedRAMP players will be covered in detail, including the government, 3PAOs and the CSPs. 

Attendees will be introduced to the sets of NIST SP 800-53 (Rev. 4) security controls required for a low impact and a moderate impact cloud environment. The newly proposed Cloud Security Assessment and Authorization (A&A) Process will be covered in detail, along with the numerous documents needed to support the A&A.
