DoD revisiting security guidelines for commercial cloud

The Defense Information Systems Agency, which serves as the broker between Defense Department components and commercial providers of cloud computing services, says the certification standards it set for commercial providers may be too arduous for vendors. DoD also launched five pilots to test the use of commercial cloud providers and is reassessing how it develops cloud requirements.

EPA unsure on cloud contracts

The Environmental Protection Agency is in the dark with its cloud contracts. EPA's Inspector General says the agency doesn't know how many cloud contracts it has, nor how secure they are. For an investigation, the IG chose a contract that met the definition of a cloud system. But the EPA didn't report it as a cloud contract because it didn't have "cloud" in the description. The agency's also using a sub-contractor that's not compliant with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. The IG says the company might not have the capability to access its cloud system hardware so the office can investigate. The EPA didn't even know it was buying a cloud system at the very start of the contracting process. The IG says the agency wasn't aware cloud computing was part of the system it was procuring.

FedRAMP's new cloud security guidance

New cloud security guidance is out from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management program, or FedRAMP. It includes new security controls and templates for agencies and cloud service providers to implement the new controls. The updates came a day after the deadline for agencies to earn FedRAMP certification for their cloud systems. The updates reflect changes from the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Special Publication 800-53. FedRAMP program manager Matt Goodrich says the latest update is the largest release of new FedRAMP information since the General Services Administration unveiled the whole concept two years ago. Right now federal agencies have 16 different FedRAMP-certified cloud options. Goodrich says those 16 options are already in place in 160 locations across the federal government.
