The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) provides a cost-effective, risk-based approach for the adoption and use of cloud services by U.S. government agencies. FedRAMP processes are designed to assist federal government agencies in meeting Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requirements for cloud systems. By standardizing on security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, this program delivers costs savings, accelerated adoption, and increased confidence in security to U.S. government agencies that are adopting cloud technologies.
The risk of cyber attacks and the cost of failure are increasing. Penalties associated with failure are only going to increase. And these challenges are compounded by increasing collaboration, use of cloud-based solutions, and an increasingly mobile workforce.
