FedRAMP Advisory & Assessment
FedRAMP compliance can open the doors to more contracts and result in more secure products and services for everyone who uses them. Companies often come to Quzara for our expertise in the FedRAMP requirements. Let's explore what FedRAMP is and how we can help.
What is FedRAMP?
Cloud service providers part of the US federal government supply chain that store, process or transmit federal data in cloud-based workloads must comply with FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) requirements.
It is often difficult for security engineers to determine the most efficient way to solve security control requirements due to ambiguity in the interpretation of the requirements. With FedRAMP, boundaries are defined and controls are implemented according to a target architecture.
FedRAMP Compliance Requirements?
There are a number of requirements to achieve FedRAMP compliance. These requirements fall into the broad categories discussed below:
- Prepare and maintain relevant documentation, including security plans, policies, procedures, and reports.
- Implement access controls to prevent unauthorized access to systems, data, and applications.
- Establish procedures to detect, respond to, and mitigate security incidents.
- Protect sensitive data with encryption, proper data handling, and secure storage practices.
- Conduct regular vulnerability assessments, apply patches and updates, and address discovered vulnerabilities.
- Continually monitor systems and infrastructure to detect and respond to security events.
- Put in place a risk management framework to identify, assess, and mitigate risks to data.
- Engage independent Third-Party Assessment Organizations (3PAOs) to conduct assessments and confirm compliance.
The Importance of FedRAMP
The importance of FedRAMP cannot be overstated in today's digital landscape. Security threats are becoming more frequent and more sophisticated.
Cloud services are particularly vulnerable, and the data used by federal agencies is often particularly sensitive.
FedRAMP provides a framework that helps safeguard this sensitive data while promoting interoperability across agencies.
Why do you need FedRAMP?
Compliance with FedRAMP opens doors to government contracts and partnerships for businesses.
It shows federal agencies that the company takes security practices seriously and establishes a solid reputation in the government sector.
Beyond that, FedRAMP compliance streamlines operations, reduces risk, and maintains the highest level of security standards.
These are all worthwhile benefits outside of the additional contracts FedRAMP compliance makes available.
