“To the Cloud! The Cloudy Role of FedRAMP in IT Modernization”


The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) established FedRAMP in December 2011 to provide joint authorizations and continuous security monitoring services for cloud services for all federal agencies.1 FedRAMP seeks to provide a cost-effective, risk-based approach for the adoption and use of cloud services by standardizing security requirements for the authorization and ongoing cybersecurity assessments of cloud services for information systems. The hearing will examine the extent to which FedRAMP has reduced duplicative efforts, inconsistencies, and cost inefficiencies associated with cloud security authorization process.
