The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) has been a highly successful GSA initiative to enable government agency use of cloud services by providing streamlined approach to assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring. Providers of cloud services may be FedRAMP-certified, allowing certified vendors to do business with the Federal Government, as well as state, local and tribal agencies that can use the GSA schedule. There are currently over 200 clouds services authorized or in process with FedRAMP.

The SANS FedRAMP workshop provides the opportunity for FedRAMP certified cloud services providers to educate constituents on their products and services. The session will open with an overview by John Pescatore, SANS Director of Emerging Trends and a member of the FedRAMP PMO providing current status and future plans for FedRAMP.
