GSA Works to Boost Security in the Cloud

Friday - 7/9/2010, 11:13am EDT

The General Services Administration is reiterating its promise to boost cybersecurity and privacy of cloud computing.

As part of the so-called FEDRAMP program, beginning this fall an interagency group will inspect vendors' cloud computing facilities to make sure they meet federal security standards. If the group certifies a cloud facility, agencies would be able to sign up for service without having to further inspect the facility.
