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.
