Cloud Expo Silicon Valley: Understanding FedRAMP

Cloud Security Providers (CSPs) interested in doing business with the government have a strategic decision to make before entering the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorization process. FedRAMP can help these providers consolidate their compliance demands by allowing them to leverage FedRAMP as the high-watermark of security control standards and apply them to other industries. Obtaining FedRAMP compliance can enable CSPs to achieve a security compliance baseline for their cloud solutions while also meeting other regulatory requirements (PCI, ISO 27001, SSAE 16, HIPAA/HITECH, FFIEC, etc.).
FedRAMP can provide CSPs with new business opportunities as federal agencies adopt the Cloud First initiative and public and private sectors expand their collaboration and interdependence.
In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo, Douglas Greise, Principal & Co-Founder of Veris Group, will discuss how the strategic and technical solutions offered by an experienced third party can provide a cost-saving and business-driven approach to gain a competitive edge in the government sector, while also meeting existing and changing compliance standards.
