Reader Submission: Case for using FedRAMP
Early in my federal security experience, I supported a government application hosting data center enclave as a security configuration manager for a large internet-facing government system. This required understanding many FISMA, NIST, and DISA controls and security configurations. I also had to verify that the systems in the data center were operating properly to these control requirements, which meant sending continuous monitoring reports to federal agencies.
The PMO has added two new Third Party Assessment Organizations (3PAOs) to its roster of accredited independent assessors.
MBL Technologies and RSM US LLP are available for use by agencies and Cloud Services Providers (CSPs). The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) accredits FedRAMP 3PAOs with the FedRAMP PMO providing final approval. Please contact A2LA for more information on becoming an accredited FedRAMP 3PAO.
