Have you or your business found yourself in need of some expert assistance navigating the FedRAMP accreditation process? If so, you are not alone and the challenges and expense associated with accreditation are seemingly endless. In 2002, the Federal government implemented the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and the IT world has never been the same. In 2011, Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) was established to provide a risk management framework for Cloud Computing resources. While both FISMA and FedRAMP are both based on similar guidance documents and philosophies, the roads to accreditation are vastly different. Here are some facts:
Compliance is mandatory. Failure to gain the FedRAMP seal of approval means your company will be ineligible to do business with the federal government.
Compliance is not cheap. On average, Cloud Service Providers (CSP’s) spend $2.25 Million to prepare and submit their application.
The number one reason identified for failure to obtain accreditation is “poor quality” accreditation package creation.
