The FedRAMP cloud cybersecurity process is building steam toward full operational capability later this year. The program achieved a major milestone with the first agency-approved cloud service. The Department of Health and Human Services determined Amazon Web Services met the security controls under FedRAMP and granted them the authority to operate on its networks. Teresa Carlson, Amazon's vice president of the worldwide public sector division, and Dave McClure, the General Services Administration's associate administrator in the Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies, sat down with Federal News Radio's Jason Miller at the Management of Change Conference in Cambridge, Md., to discuss what Amazon's approval means for the government.
