FedRAMP Analysis and Validation

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. It increases confidence in the security of cloud solutions and ensures consistent application of existing security practices and baseline standards. FedRAMP instills confidence in security assessments and increases automation and near real-time data for continuous monitoring.

FedRAMP improves the trustworthiness, reliability, consistency and quality of the federal security authorization. It enhances transparency between the U.S. government and cloud service providers (CSPs). FedRAMP analysis and validation improve real-time security visibility and it provides a uniform approach to risk-based management.

Skoda Minotti Risk Advisory Services can help your organization obtain FedRAMP validation. Our services encompass a three-step process for FedRAMP authorization:

  • Security Assessment The NIST 800-53 standard encompasses the controls that support FedRAMP and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). We follow a standardized set of requirements in accordance with FISMA using a baseline set of NIST 800-53 controls to grant security authorizations.

  • Leveraging and AuthorizationFederal agencies view security authorization packages in the FedRAMP repository and leverage the security authorization packages to grant a security authorization at their own agency.

  • Ongoing Assessment and Authorization Once an authorization is granted, ongoing assessment and authorization activities must be completed to maintain the security authorization.

FISMA Implementation

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) establishes minimum security requirements for information and information systems of contractors that provide goods and services to the federal government. It includes guidance for selecting, assessing, authorizing and monitoring information controls. We can guide you through the FISMA process with the tools to ensure your controls adhere to FISMA standards.
