Special cloud category for GSA's IT Schedule 70

The General Services Administration will add a special cloud category to its IT Schedule 70 contracting vehicle. GSA wants to consolidate the contract's cloud options under a specific special item number. Right now the agency lists the cloud options under a variety of different numbers, so agencies browsing the system can't find them all in one place. GSA says the new approach will help small agencies in particular. The cloud-specific number will have its own subcategories of cloud-specific services, too. GSA wants industry recommendations on how to do it: a request for information is out on how best to differentiate the types of cloud services Schedule 70 includes. The deadline for the cloud industry to respond to GSA's request for information is August 6th. You can find the RFI on Fed Biz Opps.

DoD's own testing of cloud security standards

The Defense Department's testing its own version of cybersecurity standards for cloud systems. The Defense Information Systems Agency is working with all the military branches to find a cybersecurity program that protects the cloud with Level-3 security requirements. DISA's enterprise cloud broker is conducting the software tests. DoD's chief of the risk management oversight division in the chief information officer's office,Kevin Delaney, isn't sure when the tests will be over. He says the development needs to run incrementally so each level of security controls are working right. The tests are coinciding with the deadline for agency cloud systems to earn security certification through the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. Right now FedRAMP offers cloud certification for low to moderate security levels.

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.

Understanding the Intersection of Customer Service and Security in the Cloud

For the past two years, agencies have been making the jump to the cloud. Many first made the jump to the cloud for back-office systems, such as email or Web hosting. But more recently, agencies are seeing value in putting mission critical IT systems in the cloud.

At the same time, federal chief information officers still are coming to terms with how cloud providers secure their public and private cloud services. The General Services Administration's FedRAMP is helping to alleviate some of those cyber concerns. Progress has been slow and steady.

There are other initiatives such as the Federal Cloud Credential Exchange that also is beginning to show promise.

This panel discusses what agencies need to consider as they move more and more of their systems to the cloud--security, identity management and ease of use.
